A retired soldier should face a general court martial where the death penalty could be ordered for a 1985 triple murder.
That's according to an Army investigating officer's recommendation released late last night. Army Master Sergeant Timothy B. Hennis was acquitted in a civilian court nearly two decades ago for the rape and murder of an Air Force captain's wife and the murders of two of their daughters.
Hennis was recalled to active duty last year so the Army could pursue new charges. Hennis faces charges including murder and premeditated murder.
The commander of the 18th Airborne Corps will make the final
ruling on how the case will proceed.
