Andre Jackson was sentenced to 25 years to life. He is eligible for parole on 04/2033. Marie was planning on leaving him which prompted the murder.
His appeal (see link) includes:
Marie's body was recovered from the trunk of her impounded Saab automobile on November 15. Defendant had reported Marie missing on November 12. Police were lead to Marie's car by Timothy Cunniff, a citizen who received a missing persons flyer from defendant at Dockweiler Beach. Cunniff saw the car described in the flyer shortly thereafter. He was surprised defendant had not seen the car, because there were no other cars in the area. The Saab was locked and the battery had been removed. The Saab could only be locked from the outside with keys, but no keys were located.
Marie was found wearing grey stretch pants, a purple nylon jacket, white tennis shoes, and a bra. She had on one earring and a wedding band. Forensic evidence was collected, including a blood drop from the hood of the Saab and scraping from under Marie's fingernails.
This episode is described as Marie Singleton and Andre Jackson had an instant connection. It wasn't long before they married and Marie became pregnant with their first child together. But soon after the birth of their son, she goes inexplicably missing.
