(Eldridge, IA) -- An Eldridge woman fatally shot at a home on Thursday is identified.

The Eldridge Police Department, Scott County Sheriff’s Office and Iowa State Patrol were dispatched to the home in the 300 block of West Davenport Street Thursday afternoon for a report of a shooting and found 28 year old Jessica Bostrom dead inside the home.

Police say the preliminary investigation resulted in the arrest of her husband, 34 year old Shane Robert Bostrom, on unrelated charges. He is charged with controlled substance violation, failure to affix drug tax stamp, both felonies, child endangerment, obstructing prosecution of defense and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to arrest affidavits, Shane Bostrom had eight live marijuana plants growing in pots, two growing tents with lights, weight and humidity scales, and bags for delivery of marijuana in the home. Investigators say his five-year-old daughter who lives in the home had access to the plants and growing areas.

Glass pipes commonly used to smoke marijuana were located and had a smell of burnt marijuana, both accessible to the child. Video surveillance observed and reviewed showed Shane Bostrom removing the eight plants and placing them outside at the back of the house in an attempt to conceal evidence, according to the affidavits.

Shane Bostrom has not been charged in connection with Jessica Bostrom’s death. The shooting remains under investigation.
