A sailor in the US Navy is alleged to have shot dead his wife’s lover after he caught the two of them having sex in the couple’s marital bed at their home. The Navy man fatally shot his wife’s boyfriend after catching them “engaged in a sexual act” inside their Virginia Beach home Friday, according to court documents.
Tyler Lamar Jenkins was arraigned Monday on one count of second-degree murder and a firearms charge in the killing of another Navy man, Timothy Paul Talley III.
Jenkins, 26, was charged with second-degree murder in Friday’s fatal shooting of 28-year-old Talley III, in Virginia Beach. His wife, who has not been named, was left unharmed.
She told police that she ‘feared for her life’ when Jenkins came into the bedroom where she was ‘engaged in a sexual act’ with her lover, who was an aviation machinist’s mate in the Navy.
It led to her husband firing at Talley almost immediately, court documents states.
Talley, who is originally from California was hit three times. Police responded to an apartment complex in the 4800 block of Crystalline Place at 9:47 p.m., where they found Talley with multiple gunshot wounds and pronounced him dead at the scene.
Jenkins was taken into custody at his home in the 4800 block of Crystalline Place in Virginia Beach, when police showed up having been summoned by his wife.
‘What am I doing wrong?’ Jenkins is said to have asked as police led him away, explaining that someone had been having sex with his wife in his house.
Jenkins admitted to the shooting with police finding the gun that he used, at the home.
Investigators have not revealed an official motive for shooting, nor is it clear whether the two men knew one another. It is unclear if Jenkins’ wife is also in the Navy.
Jenkins wo has been serving in the Navy since 2014 was arraigned on Monday and is being held without bond.
His next court appearance is scheduled for May 12.
