COLBERT, Okla. (KXII) - A man who turned himself in to police, is now facing a murder charge for the death of a Colbert man.

“It’s like a dream, I keep thinking he’s gonna come back through the door and he’s not,” Victim’s Wife Sheila Berry said.

According to Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, the deceased man’s brother, Darren Bradford, 49, turned himself in to the Colbert Police.

“Knowing that your brother is the one that shot and killed you is very hard, it will be very hard for not only me but his children, his grandchildren for the rest of our lives,” Berry said.

The Colbert Police Department requested assistance from the OSBI with a homicide that occurred Sunday evening.

“To me, siblings should never get that serious for siblings to have to end in gunfire at any point in time,” Berry said.

OSBI said Colbert police received a 9-1-1 call from 510 Martin Luther King in Colbert reporting that 56-year-old Willie Berry had been shot outside the residence.

“I came out and my husband was on the ground and had been shot,” Berry said.

Berry was pronounced deceased at the scene.

“What I want the family to do is to stay closer together,” Victim’s Cousin Blanch McShan said. “It needs to be a togetherness, everybody come on one agreement.”

Bradford is currently in the Bryan County Jail facing a murder charge.

“He’ll be my guardian angel I hope, I hope that he’s my guardian angel, we love you Willie, rest in peace,” Berry said.
