November 17, 2017
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma appeals court has upheld the life sentence of a man convicted of shooting a woman to death.
The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals handed down the decision Thursday to 49-year-old Harold Martin Brewer.
A Tulsa County jury convicted Brewer of first-degree murder in the Aug. 12, 2014, shooting death of 34-year-old Amanda Day.
Day was found in a bedroom of her home after she had been shot with a shotgun. Brewer was arrested hours later walking in a parking lot. A police affidavit says Brewer appeared to have bloodstains on the leg of his blue jeans.
