-Danny Brewer to his lover Pamela Gregory on jailhouse audiotape hours after shotgunning his naked wife dead on their bed
"Hmmmmm..... Ok..... I'm gonna say one thing... Just one .... And if I offend anyone then I DON'T GIVE A F**K!! Ok sooo where's the justice for Jennifer Bean? The first JENNIFER this POS killed? Yea it was a traffic accident... Show remorse and ask forgiveness.... I saw or heard NADA.... But I did see and hear a pitiful excuse of a man say "if she had yielded to my blue lights she would still be alive!" ..... Dash cam showed he was traveling so fast and out of her line of sight she never saw it coming. THANK YOU JESUS FOR THAT!! I feel bad for his children... I'm really not a vengeful person... But I'm on my knees praying that every inmate he meets finds out he's a former police officer.... I hope he sees my sisters face every night in his dreams... I hope he lives a longtime and suffers knowing he took a amazing ladies life... OOOO wait TWO ladies lives..... I would gladly end that suffering for him but he doesn't even deserve that bit of mercy in my book. Did I offend?? Tooo harsh you say... Well in that one single act of neglect he killed my whole family!!! He exploded my world. He crushed two good men. My dad & Bobby Bean both never recovered from that blow of losing my sister!!! So if your disturbed by my comment than tuff shit!! I've had 12 long years of HELL to deal with it. An if there is a God in heaven then he will answer my prayers and let MR BREWER (he is a disgrace to all officers by calling him FORMER) he will let mr brewer get a taste of what HELL will be like!!! I never thought I would truly HATE & would tell my son to never HATE.... It's wrong. But I'm sorry Lord forgive me but I do hate the mere mention of Danny's name."

Alcoa, Tenn. -- A former Blount County Sheriff’s Office deputy has pleaded guilty to the murder of his wife last year.
Danny Ray Brewer, 38, pleaded guilty to the second-degree murder of Jennifer Brewer on Sept. 8, 2011, in a plea deal made in front of Judge Tammy Harrington and Assistant District Attorney Shari Tayloe in Blount County Circuit Court this morning.
With his attorney, Tommy Hindman, by his side, Brewer made the plea and agreed to serve a 15-year sentence, including time already served since last September.
Brewer was scheduled for a jury trial on Nov. 13 before he agreed to make the plea deal.

MARYVILLE — A former Blount County law-enforcement officer accused of fatally shooting his wife testified Wednesday that if a judge reduced his $950,000 bond and he made bail, he'd appear back in court.
"I'm not gonna run from this. I've never run from anything in my life," Danny Ray Brewer, 37, pleaded from the witness stand during a bond-reduction hearing before Blount County General Sessions Judge Michael Gallegos.
But a recorded jail tape played moments later by Assistant District Attorney General Shari Tayloe proved Brewer a "liar," she said, and in the end, the judge denied the bond-reduction request made by Brewer's public defender, Mack Garner.
"What have you done? Why did you do this?" a woman, Pamela Gregory, on the jail tape asks Brewer just hours after he was arrested on a homicide charge, testimony showed.
"It was an accident. You gotta get me out of here so I can flee the state ... Come with me," Brewer in the tape tells Gregory, who works for AA Bonding Co. in Blount County — a woman he admitted in court Wednesday was his lover of 11 years.
Brewer, of Maryville, is accused of killing his 29-year-old wife, Jennifer Brewer, at their Sevier Avenue apartment Sept. 8. She was taken to Blount Memorial Hospital, where she died. Her husband, a former deputy with the Blount County Sheriff's Office and former officer with the Rockford Police Department, was arrested at the scene.
Court documents show she died as a result of a shotgun blast to her chest, and Blount County Sheriff's Office Detective Sgt. James Trentham on Wednesday testified that when he arrived on the scene, he found Danny Ray Brewer naked in the living room covered in blood.
"He said it never should have happened, the safety wasn't supposed to go off," Trentham testified.
In the jail tape, Brewer tells Gregory: "I didn't mean to do it. She knows it. I saw her face when it happened. I gave her CPR and everything. I tried to save her. I called 911. I screamed for an ambulance. That (SOB) was half-cocked. It went off."
"Do you love me?" Gregory asked.
"I love you enough to run with you." Brewer responded.
Shortly after, Tayloe stopped the tape recording and called Brewer a liar.
"You just can't ignore those statements," Gallegos said, then denied Garner's request to reduce Brewer's bond to $10,000. Gallegos also postponed a preliminary hearing to Dec. 14. Garner had asked for the continuance until he received reports on Jennifer Brewer's autopsy and ballistics tests.
Gregory, who sat in the courtroom Wednesday, declined comment except to say, "I did not volunteer to help him in any way."

A former Blount County law enforcement officer appeared in court Friday on criminal homicide charges involving the death of his wife.
Danny Ray Brewer, 37, was appointed a public defender, attorney Mack Garner, to represent him.
Blount County Assistant District Attorney General Shari Tayloe will be the prosecuting attorney.
Brewer and the attorneys are to appear again Friday in the Blount County General Sessions Courtroom of Judge Michael Gallagos to determine how the case will be handled. This will involve such things as setting a date to hear motions.
Bail for Brewer, who has been in Blount County Jail since being taken into custody, remains at $950,000.
Blount deputies answered a call of a shooting at 11:19 a.m. on Sept. 8 to an apartment complex on Sevier Avenue.
There they found a naked Brewer screaming and covered in blood in his apartment, according to the police report. He was escorted from the room and the gun believed to have been used in the shooting was recovered.
They found his wife, Jennifer L. Brewer, 29, lying face up on the bed and bleeding from a large wound on the left side of her chest.
She was not breathing and was later that day pronounced dead at Blount Memorial Hospital.
Danny Brewer was first held for investigation in the case and then charged with criminal homicide.
Brewer is a former Rockford police officer and Blount County deputy who was involved in a May 2000 fatal crash while en route to assist a deputy.
Brewer was serving as a Rockford police officer on May 16, 2000, when he was involved in an accident that killed Jennifer Lowe Bean, 29, of Jackson Hills Drive, Maryville, according to Daily Times archives.
