The woman suspected of shooting and killing her husband, the fire chief of Nichols Hills, will stand trial.

Becky Bryan is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her husband, Keith Bryan. She appeared in a Canadian Country District courtroom on Wednesday.

After two days of testimony in a preliminary hearing, a judge says there is enough evidence to send the case to trial.

Police say Bryan shot her husband, Keith, inside the couple's home in Mustang last September then tried to blame the shooting on an intruder. Investigators later found the gun used in the shooting in the couple's laundry room.
