Christian County, KY: Woman Charged In Soldier Husband's Death In Court

CHRISTIAN COUNTY, Ky. - The woman charged in the shooting death of her Fort Campbell soldier husband was in court Monday.

Police discovered the body of Vincent Goslyn Junior in Christian County Friday night. Goslyn, a Fort Campbell soldier, had suffered several gunshot wounds.

His 25-year-old wife, Jessie, was arrested and charged with his death after allegedly implicating herself during an interview with police on Saturday morning.

24-year-old Jarred Long, a discharged Ft. Campbell soldier, has also been arrested in Colorado in connection with Goslyn's murder.

"The circumstances of their relationship is something we are not releasing right now, I can tell you they were acquaintances," said Captain Chris Miller with the Christian County Sheriff's Department.

Long will be extradited back to Kentucky.

Goslyn's father spoke with NewsChannel5 by phone from his home in Oklahoma.

"We are mourning. He was a good kid. 28-years-old. He didn't have to lose his life that way. It's not easy right now. It's not easy, this should have never happened," said Vincent Goslyn Senior.

Investigators said they believe that Goslyn's violent death on the side of Fidelio Road Friday night wasn't a crime of passion or a random act of violence like his wife told 911 operators.

"We are leaning towards pre meditated murder at this point," said Officer Chris Miller with the Christian County Sheriffs Office.

Jessie Goslyn's arrest citation states she admitted to willingly driving her husband to the place he was killed knowing that he was going to be harmed when he got there.

Goslyn was being held in the Christian County jail on $1-million bond.

Jessie and Vincent Goslyn had three very young children, who are staying with neighbors on post.
