Man arrested for Fort Stewart murder still not transported to Georgia

Posted: Updated:
FORT STEWART (WTOC) -

Carl Swain, the man arrested in Alabama for a murder on Fort Stewart, has still not been transferred to Georgia.

The U.S. Marshal's service has said a judge will not schedule a first appearance for 41-year-old Swain until he is physically in their custody and in this district, which hasn't happened yet.

The FBI has sealed all of the other information on this case, including all of the information about the murder.

A local newspaper in Jasper, AL had reported that Swain has been in trouble with the law in the past. He had been charged with crimes like theft, aggravated assault and domestic violence. Many of those arrests were made in Florida.

WTOC still does not know if Swain's case is related to the death of Spc. John Eubank, the man found near Holbrook Pond on Fort Stewart a week before Swain's arrest. 

Just a few days ago, friends and family were able to attend a visitation for Eubank in Ludowici and committal services in Glennville with full military honors. His death remains under investigation by the FBI, MilitaryPolice and CID.

Eubank was originally from Mountain Village, Alaska. He leaves behind a wife and two step children.

The FBI says us once Swain makes his first appearance in Federal Court, the case will be unsealed, telling us whether his arrest is connected to Eubank's death.
