ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) Paul Jackson, the man convicted of “manslaughter” last month for the 2010 killing of missing Pineville woman Eyvonne Rosier, will spend the next 25 years in prison.
News Channel Five’s Brooke Buford was in the courtroom as the sentence was handed down. She talked with the Rosier family to find out how they feel about his punishment.
At his sentencing hearing today, a RPSO Detective said Jackson finally admitted to “choking” Rosier to death after her remains were found three years after her disappearance. Rosier was living with Jackson at the time of her death. He was the boyfriend of her late mother.

Paul Jackson is charged with second-degree murder and obstruction of justice in the case of Dorothy Evyonne Rosier.
“Finally the family will have a little more closure to this case. In a cold case, you go back to zero, start over and run down every lead and that’s what our Detectives did. They have put in a lot of man hours and worked long into the night last night to make this arrest.” said Sheriff Hilton.
“I would also like to thank Sheriff Scott Franklin and the LaSalle Parish Sheriff’s Office for their ongoing assistance in this case.”
