Convicted Missouri Killer Confesses To Muskogee Killing, Too

Posted: Updated:

MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) - A convicted killer in Missouri has admitted she killed an Oklahoma woman in 1994.

Odessa Brown was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after pleading guilty last week in Muskogee County District Court to first-degree murder in the strangulation of 83-year-old Elnora Riley in Muskogee.

The Muskogee Phoenix reports that Brown worked for Riley and said she killed her after Riley realized Brown had stolen a ring from her finger while giving her a manicure.

Riley's death was originally ruled due to natural causes and was not considered a homicide until Brown confessed in 2010 in a letter to prosecutors.

Brown was serving life in prison in Missouri for killing a Kansas City man when she says God told her to confess to killing Riley.
