Justin Eilers Shot And Killed

Justin EilersJustin Eilers was shot and killed earlier today in what appears to be a domestic dispute at an acquaintance’s home in Canyon County, Idaho.

Sherdog’s Loretta Hunt has the details.

Cox said Eilers had gathered with relatives for the holidays, but tensions escalated with an ex-girlfriend, also in attendance. Eilers was asked to leave the residence, but was said to have refused and began throwing dishes and other objects in protest. The home’s owner was then said to have pulled a gun on Eilers and shot him in the chest after a brief verbal confrontation.

Eilers’ ex-girlfriend, mother, and young son were said to have been in the room at the time of the shooting.

James Robert Malec, 48, was arrested and charged with second degree murder in relation with the shooting, said Capt. Maxfield. It is believed that Malec is Eilers’ mother’s boyfriend. Capt. Maxfield could not confirm this relationship or Eilers’ alleged interaction with the ex-girlfriend. Maxfield did confirm that numerous relatives were at the scene at the time of the shooting.

Truly saddening news, especially during the holiday season. Our thoughts go out to Eilers’ friends and family during this tragic time.
