2 former Tacoma men sentenced for killing housemate in 2018

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — Two Washington state men have each been sentenced to more than two decades in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder in the death of a housemate in 2018. Bobbie Anson Pease and Jeremy Jay Warren took 34-year-old Jessica Shaunti Jackson into some woods on federal property just outside Joint Base Lewis-McChord after giving her a ride to a convenience store. They beat her with a metal baseball bat before Pease shot her, claiming she had stolen a pocket knife and a drug pipe. U.S. District Judge Robert J. Bryan sentenced Pease, 53, to 26 years in prison. Warren, 34, received nearly 22 years.
