An autopsy report says a pregnant soldier found dead in a Fayetteville motel room in June likely died of asphyxiation.
The report says Megan Touma's body was in a state of moderate to advanced decomposition when found on June 21 fully submerged in a bathtub in her motel room.
Autopsy findings also show hemorrhage consistent with blunt force injury which could mean Touma was strangled.
Officials say Sgt. Edgar Patino 27 was the father of Touma's unborn baby. He has been charged with first-degree murder.
