In 2012, Burney, 59, was found guilty of first-degree murder in the southeast Tulsa killing of her husband, Arthur. Because her husband was abusive, Patricia Burney allegedly bribed her daughter's lover to kill him, according to the prosecution and witnesses. Patricia was sentenced to life in prison in charge of her husband murder without the chance of parole.

Burney claimed in a handwritten appeal to the Supreme Court that prosecutors had violated her constitutional rights by keeping a plea deal between them and co-defendant Michael Richardson, the gunman in the case, and her daughter's boyfriend. Richardson, who admitted guilt and gave a deposition against Burney, received a 28-year prison term.

Burney called the plea agreement "dirty," telling the high court that she was found guilty "in a circumstantial case that rested solely upon the perjured evidence" of Richardson. She claimed that the prosecution violated her rights to a fair trial under the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments by keeping information about the bargain from her.

Michael Richardson was the boyfriend of Patricia's daughter and was offered $6000 to kill Patricia's husband. Richardson, 19, was sentenced to 28 years after admitting guilt to the second-degree murder of Arthur Burney in Wagoner, Oklahoma.

Richardson testified during the trial that Patricia Burney and her daughter picked him up in a rental car and took him to the Burney residence in Coweta. According to the Tulsa World, Richardson claimed Patricia Burney gave him the order to use a.22-caliber weapon concealed behind a bedroom door to "kill Arthur Burney." 

He claimed Patricia Burney had instructed her daughter to take him back to the property for "practice shots." Later, it was said that Richardson concealed in the tack area of the barn, where saddles and bridles are kept for horseback riding, and shot Burney as soon as he entered.

According to the newspaper, Richardson was never successful in getting the money. Michelle Burney, the victim's daughter and the killer's lover, was just 14 years old at the time of the murder.

She pleaded guilty to murder, according to The Tulsa World, and was taken into the custody of Oklahoma's Office of Juvenile Affairs. She had stated that her mother "wanted" her father to be killed since he had started verbally abusing her mother and "was always rude."
