Jennie Lynn Locklear is charged with first degree murder, larceny of a firearm and possession of a stolen firearm, according to Major Anthony Thompson of the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office.

The Robeson County Sheriff’s Office responded to Jennie Road Rowland in reference to a woman who shot her ex-husband to death Sunday, September 13, while he was feeding his animals.

When authorities arrived on the scene they found that 55-year-old Jessie James Locklear had been shot. Authorities say Locklear died before being transported to the hospital.
