Jephthah was a judge of Israel.  He was in a place of
leadership over a nation; it seems quite natural to me
that his the events of his life would be recorded. 
The book of Judges relates the lives of the judges of
Israel, Jephthah was one of those judges, so the
author of Judges placed this incident in the book of
Judges.  Seems logical to me.
