Fort Campbell Solider Found Dead In His Barracks

Another Fort Campbell soldier is found dead, three days after being stabbed.

22-year-old Private Matthew Nicholson of the 101st Airborne Division was found dead in his barracks by another soldier on Dec. 2.

Attorney Martha Carlton-Magana says Nicholson was trying to break up a fight among other soldiers last Thursday, when he was stabbed in the chest.

You may remember Nicholson from national media attention when he was charged for intervening in a fight with a man he thought was assaulting two women in Modesto, California.

Military officials are overseeing the investigation into Nicholson's death.
