    SNIP

    The Pierce County Medical Examiner's Office on Monday identified the woman as Pepper L. Jones, 27. An autopsy on her body to determine how and why she died was being planned.

    Looks like Pepper might have had a Myspace. No photos, but some text there:

    About me:
    I work 40-50 hours per week and the same @ home as well. I just bought a home and have a Husband and a Daughter. I love to drink, smoke and have fun!

    Husband's name, based on a search of public records, could be Jayson Lee Jones.

    Jayson Jones, who confessed to beating his wife to death one year ago was sentenced to 18 years in prison on Friday. But family members of his wife, Pepper Jones, say he got off too easy.
    The sobbing relatives of Pepper Jones filled the first row of the courtroom. They glared at a shackled Jayson Jones, who never made eye contact with them.

    snip

    Jayson Jones confessed to bludgeoning his wife last February with a claw hammer, but says he doesn't remember the crime.

    Pepper's mother says her daughter was packing her bags on the night of the murder. Lynn Boldenow says Pepper had just learned Jayson had fathered a son with another woman and wanted a divorce.

    On the same page as that link is an article about a man getting 21 years for raping his wife in front of his young daughter. And Jayson Jones is only getting 18 years for murdering his wife? Hard to understand...where's the justice?

    He'll probably only do the usual half and be out in 9. Good behavior and all that. Disgusting. Washington state doesn't give detailed information on inmates, so I wasn't able to get his projected parole date.
