Soldier (a woman) to face death penalty court-martial

Seattle Times reports.

A woman accused of killing two fellow soldiers from Joint Base Lewis-McChord and kidnapping their baby in 2008 will face a general court-martial after military authorities determined last week there was enough evidence to move forward with the case.

The News Tribune reports this is a death penalty referral (seems like a decent summary of the case so far).  See also, BakersfieldNow.com.

Brig. Gen. Jeff Mathis, the Lewis-McChord commander while I Corps is deployed to Iraq, made the decision to pursue the death penalty late last week. The base’s public affairs said the general wasn’t available for an interview because he will be called upon to take future action in the case.
