Opening Testimony in Soldier Double Murder

Testimony began today in the double murder trial of a Fort Stewart soldier. John Tolbert, Jr., is accused of killing two other soldiers--his estranged wife and her boyfriend--in Hinesville.

Police found Sauda Tolbert and Anthony Walters at Walters' mobile home on Kelly Drive in April of 2002. All three soldiers were stationed at Fort Stewart.

The prosecution's case is expected to continue through early next week. They are seeking the death penalty.
