Oklahoma City Police arrested Brodric Glover Wednesday night for the killing of pregnant mother Jessica McPherson-Brown. Police said McPherson-Brown's estranged husband, Fabion Brown, and Brown's girlfriend, Emily Matheson, hired Glover to carry out the crime.
Glover was arrested in the 1700 block of S. Westwood in southwest Oklahoma City just after 8 p.m. Wednesday.
Early Wednesday, police escorted Brown and Matheson from the Midwest City Police Department to a waiting squad car to be transported to the Oklahoma County Jail. Matheson did not say a word on her walk. Brown could not keep quiet.
When asked if Brown thought he had been framed, he said, "That's what it looks like to me." Brown did not say whom he thought may have framed him. Police do not believe his claim of being framed. Brown did not waiver from maintaining his innocence while being peppered with questions from reporters.
Police say Brown and his girlfriend paid 19-year-old Glover $250 to kill McPherson-Brown and her unborn child. The price tag on the two lives left neighbors disgusted.
"For that kind of money? No way," neighbor Marcus Freeman said.
The Midwest City chief of police spoke with reporters shortly after the couple was transported from police headquarters.
"It's a very sad case," Brandon Clabes said. "By the fact that you've got a 23-year-old mother and her unborn child killed while her two other children were laying next to her …"
On January 11, police found McPherson-Brown's body in a Midwest City home on Locust Drive. Her two children were found alone in the front yard hours after the crime was believed to have taken place.
"Everyone's scared of [Fabion]. I'm not," neighbor Mike Mays said.
Mays lived two doors down from Fabion for four months. Mays says his former neighbor was nothing but trouble, evident from beating Jessica to harassing elderly women in the neighborhood.
"He'll sit out [on his porch] and call [the elderly women] white crack whores," Mays said. "When the law comes up, he runs in the house. [The] law had never been able to do anything about it. I'm from southeast Oklahoma, and where I come from, you don't do that to people."
Police are still waiting for the district attorney to formally charge Brown and Matheson.
