Ladies, Here’s A Good Reason To Shut It And Just Let Your Man Sleep…

Posted on October 2, 2012


West Virginia (The Gaslamp Post) – You know how some people you should just let sleep because they always wake up cranky?

A man told a judge that the reason he shot and killed his girlfriend was because she “woke me up.”

Last Friday Eric Brian Pauley, 50, of Winfield gave a Putnam County judge his side of the story before pleading guilty to first-degree-murder.

Sentenced: Eric Brian Pauley, wake him at your own risk.

“She woke me up.  . . . It made me mad she woke me up like that in the middle of the night,” said Pauley.  “She come in, flipped the light on and started hollering.”

Pauley explained how when his girlfriend, Debra Rosiek, 52, had woken him up in the middle of the night, he reached under a pile of clothes next to the bed, pulled out a handgun, and fired at her, inside of their trailer back in September of 2011.

Once Pauley realized what he had done, he went to the sheriff to report the shooting on September 17, 2011.  He had reportedly given his keys to officers who then went to the home that he and Rosiek, his girlfriend of 4 years had shared.

Authorities found Rosiek’s body, containing multiple gunshot wounds to the chest.

Under a plea agreement, Pauley was sentenced to life in prison with mercy because to his full cooperation with the investigation.  He has already served 378 days and will be eligible for parole in 15 years.
