Bangor, ME — Roxanne Jeskey, 48, was arrested Wednesday night in connection with the brutal torture and murder of her husband, 53-year-old Richard Jeskey. And she didn’t murder him just a little bit either…
According to the police affidavit, Richard’s naked, beaten and bloodied body was found in the bathtub on June 13. An autopsy conducted the next day revealed extensive multiple blunt and sharp force injuries to the head, neck, torso, and limbs…
“These included nose fractures, loss of an eye, rib fractures, rectal incised wounds, and internal hemmorhage from an instrument(s) pushed through his scrotum into his abdomen,” Bangor police Detective David Bushey wrote in the affidavit. “Further, Mr. Jeskey was strangled with sufficient force to break the hyoid bone of his neck.”
Roxanne reportedly admitted to police that she assaulted her husband with various weapons including pliers, a box cutter and a plastic baseball bat.
She described to detectives how she used a pair of pliers to injure Richard’s genitals, stating that as he sat in the bathtub, presumably bleeding from his baby-maker, he “made a statement concerning the fact that she had hurt him,” to which she replied, “Now you know how I feel.”
Roxanne told police she exited the bathroom and left Richard sitting in the bathtub. She claims she heard him fall down numerous times, striking his head on the tub at least seven times. Obviously exhausted, she then laid down on the couch to take a nap. And considerate woman that she is, she didn’t even bother taking her sleep aid medication because she wanted to hear Richard if he called out for her.
The medical examiner has ruled the manner of Richard’s death a homicide, duh, but the cause of death is pending toxicology reports. She had to have drugged him with something…I can’t see any man allowing a pissed off woman anywhere near his balls with a pair of pliers. I only hope he was totally out of it before she started getting all cutty and stabby.
Why so murdery, you ask? Roxanne told police she and her husband argued because of a phone call he received from an ex-girlfriend.
She’s currently being held at the Penobscot County Jail and is scheduled to appear in court sometime today. If convicted of murder, she’s looking at a minimum sentence of 25 years and a maximum sentence of life.
Thanks for the tip, Bill…I think.
