Man accused of shooting & killing ex-girlfriend on Valentine's Day, hiding her body in bushes

The ex-boyfriend of an Auburn woman is accused of shooting her to death in her car on Valentine's Day.

The King County Prosecutor's Office on Wednesday charged 32-year-old Calvin Jackson, Jr. with a domestic violence first-degree murder charge.

According to charging docs, Jackson shared a home with his 34-year-old ex-girlfriend, their children and her mother. The two ended their relationship at some point, and the victim had been asking Jackson to move out for several months.

Jackson told investigators she had begun a new romantic relationship with a woman, and he had a "building rage" toward her, court docs say.

On Feb. 14, the victim got in her car to go to work at a nearby daycare, and Jackson was in the backseat. According to court docs, Jackson shot her several times through the back of her seat, then drove her car to a parking lot off of West Valley Highway and dragged her body into some bushes. Jackson told investigators he saw that she was still moving, so he fired another round directly into her face "to finish her off." Charging docs suggest he abandoned the car before leaving.

Jackson returned home, and when the victim's mother learned she had not made it to work, she called police. Court docs say Jackson lied to police about any involvement, saying he "was concerned because she was missing."

Prosecutors say Jackson is from Georgia, and has no prior criminal history there or in Washington. Jackson has several weapons registered in his name, including an AR-15; police seized three weapons known to be registered to him.

Jackson is being held in lieu of $5 million bail. Prosecutors also requested a no-contact order between him and his two sons and the victim's mother.
