Midwest City Police: Murder Suspect Gives Details Of Pregnant Mom's Murder
MIDWEST CITY, Oklahoma - Police said a 19-year-old man accused of killing a woman for $250 has confessed to the crime and given a graphic and detailed account of the murder.
A team of Oklahoma County deputies, Oklahoma City police officers and U.S. Marshals arrested Brodric Glover Wednesday night. He's accused of shooting Jessica McPherson-Brown twice in the face.
She was 24 weeks pregnant when she died.
Midwest City Police found McPherson-Brown's body in her home on January 11. According to police, the woman's two young children, ages 2 and 4, were likely nearby when she was killed.
During questioning Wednesday night, police said Glover confirmed McPherson-Brown's death was part of a murder-for-hire plot. Police have arrested McPherson-Brown's estranged husband, Fabion Brown, and his girlfriend, Emily Matheson. The two are accused of paying Glover $250 for the killing.
According to police, Glover said Brown approached him, described the McPherson-Brown home and gave him details about her routine. Glover said Brown also rented a car from him to use during the crime.
"Glover was calloused as he described the night he killed Jessica and calmly talked about shooting her as she laid next to her two small children," said Midwest City Police Chief Brandon Clabes. "If there was a true, accurate description of a cold-blooded killer, Brodric Glover is the poster child."
Glover told police Brown gave him half the money up front. He said the two met less than an hour after McPherson-Brown was killed, and Brown paid Glover the other $125.
Glover has been arrested on two counts of first-degree murder. Brown and Matheson face charges of conspiracy to commit murder.
