A former Fort Campbell-based soldier accused of rape and murder in an incident in Iraq will arrive in Kentucky today.

Steven D. Green is charged with the rape and killing of an Iraqi woman and her family.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Marisa Ford in Louisville says Green is being transported to Kentucky today from North Carolina. She wouldn't give further details.

A preliminary hearing for Green had been scheduled for Monday the tenth in Charlotte, North Carolina.

According to court records, Green was given an honorable discharge from the Army in May after being diagnosed with a personality disorder.

He was arrested on Friday at a relative's home in Marion, North Carolina.

If convicted, Green could face the death penalty.
