Shooting of Girlfriend Sends Paroled Killer Back to Prison
The Yakima Herald Republic reports that Corey Bushul Jackson of Yakima, nicknamed “C-Money,” was sentenced to 5½ years in prison Friday for shooting a woman he had been dating.
Jackson also earned his second strike for his plea in Yakima County Superior Court to charges of second-degree assault — domestic violence — and first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm.
According to the Yakima Herald Republic, the case stemmed from a shooting last June where a 27-year-old woman was dropped off at Yakima Regional Medical and Cardiac Center with a life-threatening gunshot wound.
Detectives said the woman repeatedly declined to say what happened and insisted that she did not want to pursue charges, the Republic reported, but detectives said several members of her family came forward in the days after the shooting and said the woman had identified Jackson, her boyfriend, as the person who shot her.
The woman’s stepfather said she was trying to get away from Jackson during an argument, but he forced her in his vehicle, pulled out a gun and shot her, then pushed her out of the car, as mentioned by the Yakima Herald Republic.
The Republic states that the Court records show Jackson was convicted of second-degree murder in King County in 1995 and was paroled in 2006.
