A sailor in the US Navy is alleged to have shot dead his wife's lover after he caught the two of them having sex in the couple's marital bed at their home in Virginia.
Tyler Lamar Jenkins, 26, was charged with second-degree murder in Friday's fatal shooting of Timothy Paul Talley III, 28 in Virginia Beach. His wife, who has not been named, was left unharmed.
She told police that she 'feared for her life' when Jenkins came into the bedroom where she was 'engaged in a sexual act' with her lover, who was an aviation machinist's mate in the Navy.
It led to her husband firing at Talley almost immediately, court documents as seen by the Virginian-Pilot state.

Talley, who is originally from California was hit three times in the 'domestic related shooting death' just before 10pm, and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Jenkins was taken into custody at his home in the 4800 block of Crystalline Place in Virginia Beach, when police showed up having been summoned by his wife.
'What am I doing wrong?' Jenkins is said to have asked as police led him away, explaining that someone had been having sex with his wife in his house.
Jenkins admitted to the shooting with police finding the gun that he used, at the home.
Investigators have not revealed an official motive for shooting, nor is it clear whether the two men knew one another. It is unclear if Jenkins' wife is also in the Navy.
Jenkins had been serving in the Navy since 2014. He was arraigned on Monday and is being held without bond and is set to appear in court next on May 12.
