SAVANNAH, Ga. (June 29, 2013)--Army prosecutors plan to reveal why a Georgia-based soldier who’s accused of leading an anti-government militia group has also been charged in the death of his pregnant wife two years ago.
A legal hearing at Fort Stewart for Pvt. Isaac Aguigui, 21, is scheduled to begin Monday.
The Army charged him in April with murder in the July 2011 death of his wife, Sgt. Deirdre Aguigui, and in the death of their unborn child, but no other details were released.
Aguigui and two other soldiers face the death penalty in a civilian court for a double slaying nearly eight months after the wife's death.
Civilian prosecutors say Aguigui led a militia group funded with money from his wife's life insurance.
The Army hearing will determine whether there's enough evidence for a court-martial.
