Life’s a bitch, at least for this guy-BBC NEWS

James Brewer thought he was dying from a stroke so to “hedge his bets” with the spirit in the sky he confessed to murdering his neighbour in 1977.

Unfortunately for Mr Brewer he recovered, has been charged with murder and could face the death penalty.

Mr Brewer had reportedly moved to Oklahoma from Tennessee after jumping bail after he was originally arrested and charged with Mr Carroll's murder in 1977. The former factory worker changed his name to Michael Anderson and settled down with his wife, Dorothy, in the town of Shawnee.

The couple became active members of the local church, where Mrs Brewer established a Bible study group, reports say.

After suffering a stroke, Mr Brewer called police to his hospital bedside earlier this month, where he reportedly made the confession.

Detectives said Mr Brewer had admitted killing Mr Carroll, who he believed had been trying to seduce his wife.

Perhaps the “spirit in the sky” was playing a joke on him.
