FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) -- A Fort Campbell soldier will face a court-martial in the 2007 slayings of his estranged wife and her former mother-in-law in Kentucky after civilian prosecutors tried unsuccessfully to convict him in criminal court.
The military said in a statement Tuesday that an investigating officer has recommended that charges of premeditated murder be referred to a court-martial for Sgt. Brent Burke, a military policeman at the installation on the Kentucky-Tennessee state line. No trial date has been set.
Burke's estranged wife, Tracy Burke, and Karen Comer were found shot to death in Comer's home in Rineyville, Ky., in September 2007. A civilian judge dismissed the charges against Burke after a prosecutor cited evidence problems with the case, and the military filed charges against him less than two weeks later.
