|Death: ||Nov. 11, 1987|
John George Brewer and his fiancée, Rita Brier, were living in a Flagstaff apartment. In the early morning hours of November 11, 1987 they argued about Brewer's excessive dependence on her. Later that day, she told Brewer that she was going to leave him to help him learn to live on his own. He locked the bedroom door and began to beat and strangle Brier. She was 22 weeks pregnant at the time.
He then walked to a nearby bowling alley, called the police and turned himself in. Brewer pleaded guilty to first-degree murder.
