Sgt. Vincinte Jackson, US Army, was convicted of the brutal murder of co-worker and fellow Army soldier Brandy Fonteneaux. Both Sgt. Vincinte and Brandy were assigned to the 4th Engineer Battalion at Fort Carson, Colorado. Brandy was found stabbed to death in her barracks room at Fort Carson on January 9, 2012. After an investigation, Sgt. Jackson was accused of finding the first unlocked door he could in the barracks, entering, and then stabbing and slashing Brandy Fonteneaux 74 times. Jackson was courts martialed by the Army and found guilty of murder by a jury of eight of his peers but they acquitted him on the charge of premeditated murder. Jackson’s defense lawyers blamed heavy drinking with the combination of anti-depressants leaving him unable to control his own actions. The prosecution scoffed at the defense and accused Jackson of trying doors in the Fort Carson Army barracks corridor until he found one that was unlocked. They deduced that Jackson made the conscience decision to leave his room and walk to Brandy’s room where he stabbed and slashed her to near death. An autopsy revealed Jackson choked her to death to take her out of the misery he put her in. Sgt. Vincinte Jackson was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
