A South Bend man will spend the next 55 years in prison after pleading guilty to killing a woman at the Rodeway Inn motel in Roseland.
The shooting happened in September of 2019. Witnesses, at the time, told police they saw Jamie Nathaniel Garner, naked, pointing a gun while arguing with the victim.
The witness ran out of the room and called police, who arrived to find Jenna Lynn Vanhorn shot to death at the motel on State Road 933.
Garner was arrested nearly two weeks later at a family member’s home in Detroit.
In exchange for the plea, prosecutors dropped a firearm sentencing enhancement and agreed to a maximum 55-year prison sentence.
Garner is expected to be sentenced in January.
