A statement on behalf of the senior leadership at Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield:

Three Fort Stewart Soldiers appeared in civilian court today on murder charges.  State and Army officials have closely cooperated since the alleged crimes first came to light in December 2011.  This cooperation continues as we support the State's lead in these criminal prosecutions.

In addition to investigating the murder allegations, Fort Stewart and the Army Criminal Investigation Command broadened their investigation into potential anti-government gang affiliation or related activities on Fort Stewart.  To date, this investigation has not uncovered any additional evidence.

The Army retains criminal jurisdiction over the Soldiers under the Uniform Code of Military Justice even while State criminal charges are pending.  Consequently, all of the Soldiers remain in the Army.

Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield is a safe place for Soldiers, Families, and Army Civilians who remain proud members of our neighboring communities.  The Soldiers of the 3rd Infantry Division and Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield are dedicated professionals who selflessly serve our Nation at home and abroad.
