Lateisha Jandreau found guilty in husband’s killing

Latishe Jandreau.

A Currituck County woman was found guilty Friday of the first-degree murder of her husband over two years ago.

A jury took less than two hours to return their verdict against 40-year-old Lateisha Askew Jandreau.

She was convicted of shooting to death Paul Jandreau inside their Brumsey Landing home in late-June 2010.

His body was found in a storage container in the garage during a search by Currituck deputies, who found her hiding in a closet.

She was given an automatic sentence of life without parole under state guidelines, since prosecutors did not seek the death penalty.

Jandreau’s attorney told Superior Court Judge Jerry Tillett that she intends to appeal the verdict.

As a fromer shipmate and friend of Pauls, I hope this brings some peace to the family. The death penalty should have been on the table for such a horrific crime. Quote the bible all you want, ane eye for an eye!

If we never did any judging of folks, there’d be a whole lot of rotten people roaming the streets. I disagree wholeheartedly with your comment, Triish.

Karen and others: Sorry for the loss of your friend. Kudos to the justice system for getting this one right.

To triish J. I attended the trial and saw the photo grafts of Pauls autopsy.I also knew Paul well.When the police asked Lateisha what should happen to someone who did that to Paul, Lateisha stated “they should be killed”. Lateisha did not get the death penality, she got life in prison without parole. She will have pleanty of time to pray for forgiveness.

Can we get her whole life story? History of violence? Other people she’s dated? Facebook status? Quotes from her family? Isn’t this the Outer Banks Voice way? :-P

Paul Jandreau was a friend of mine, a veteran of the US Navy and he was a wonderful person. He never did anything of meet this tragic end. The prosecutors should have asked for the death penalty. She doesn’t deserve to live after murdering Paul. She’s a cold hearted killer.
