Third ID Soldier Charged in Murder

A Third Infantry Division soldier based at Fort Benning is charged with killing one fellow soldier and trying to kill another. Spc. Chris Roland and all the soldiers involved are stationed in Iraq.

Roland got in an argument three weeks ago with another soldier. Investigators say he pulled a military-issue handgun and shot Pvt. Dylan Paytas to death. They're also charging him with trying to kill Pvt. Master Michael Ramsey, but the Army won't say if Ramsey was wounded.

Roland goes to court in January on the charges.
