Evans Woman Kills Drunk Boyfriend in Defense of Herself & Her Teen Son


It is unlikely an Evans woman will face any charges after fatally shooting her drunken boyfriend late Wednesday, authorities said.

Jessica Lynn Anderson, 41, shot her boyfriend Billy Wayne Rodgers just before midnight Wednesday at her home at 925 Hunting Horn Way.

Sheriff’s Maj. Steve Morris said the woman and her 15-year-old son both gave similar accounts that Rodgers had become aggressive and physical during an argument outside the teen’s upstairs bedroom.

Anderson retrieved a gun and shot Rodgers once in the chest. He was rushed to the hospital, where he died in surgery, Maj. Morris said.

“This shooting appears to be in self-defense,” Maj. Morris said. “(We are) reviewing the evidence and awaiting autopsy results to make a final ruling.”
