STPSO: Ongoing domestic violence turns deadly for Pearl River woman

ST. TAMMANY PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

An ongoing domestic violence problem turned deadly just after midnight Friday as St. Tammany Parish recorded its second homicide of 2016.

Early Friday morning the George County Sheriff’s Office in Mississippi contacted the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office and said that 35-year-old Jonathan Talley came home with his 3-year-old son and told his parents that he had just shot his ex-girlfriend, Aimee Kirst, 33, of Pearl River. Deputies who went to check on Kirst discovered her deceased inside her home from an apparent gunshot wound to the head.

Investigators said Talley had an active restraining order against him for assaulting Kirst in early 2015. He was arrested in 2015 for allegedly threating her, and at one point, brought a gun to the friend’s house where Kirst was staying at the time. That incident prompted the protective order, and Talley lost custody of their 3-year-old son.

Police do not yet know what led to the Friday morning shooting, but they believe that the 3-year-old was there when it occurred. Investigators are working to conduct a forensic interview of the child to determine what he witnessed.

A first-degree-murder and a second-degree-kidnapping warrant have been issued for Talley, who is in custody in George County, Mississippi, and will have to be extradited back to Louisiana to face the charges.
