A Putnam County Deputy got the surprise of his career when Eric Brian Pauley, Eric Brian Pauley49, knocked on the Sheriff Department's door and allegedly confessed to murder.

According to Deputy Davis, it happened September 17th, 2011, shortly before 10:00 p.m., in Winfield.

Davis reports that Pauley admits to shooting his live-in girlfriend, Debra Rosiek, 52, at their home at the Winfield Mobile Home Park. He told Davis that he had a weapon in the trunk of his car. Davis says he confirmed the weapon's presence. Sgt. Hamrick went to the home and reports finding Rosiek, 52, deceased from multiple gunshot wounds including shots to her hand and chest.

Pauley was known to neighbors as a quiet man that kept to himself. They are in shock over the killing.

Why did he do it? We don't know-yet. The Sheriff's Department is not releasing the motive for the murder-at this time.

We can report that Pauley was arrested for felony First Degree Murder and transported to the Western Regional Jail and Correctional Facility, in Barboursville. Officials booked and photographed at 2:45 a.m., according to the jail's web site.

During a hearing, bond was denied by Putnam County Magistrate Kimberly M. Blair-Caruthers, jail records state. This is typical for murder cases.

Despite Pauley's alleged confession and Rosiek's gunshot wounds, her body has been taken to the West Virginia Medical Examiner for an autopsy.

Pauley's Putnam County Magistrate Court case number is: 11F, 402.
