FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) -- A Fort Campbell soldier has been charged in the stabbing and choking death of his wife at their home at the Army installation.
According to a statement from the Fort Campbell public affairs office, 25-year-old Spc. Robert Jenks has been charged with the slaying of 21-year-old Linzi R. Jenks, who was found dead Sunday.
The charge of murder with premeditation alleges that he pushed, choked and stabbed her. He was also charged with wrongfully possessing two guns that were not registered with the installation security office.
