DENVER — A 28-year-old Army corporal from Fort Riley, Kan., was found dead amid blood and flower petals in a Colorado motel room, apparently after a Valentine's Day quarrel with her soldier boyfriend, according to a court document released Tuesday.

The body of Cpl. Kimberly Walker was found Sunday in Colorado Springs, police said. Army Sgt. Montrell Lamar Anderson Mayo, who is stationed at Fort Carson outside Colorado Springs, surrendered later that day to police in Greenville, N.C.

An acquaintance of Mayo's told police Mayo was with his grandmother in Greenville.

Mayo, 24, was being held on a Colorado warrant alleging first-degree murder after deliberation. Greenville jail records did not indicate whether he had an attorney.

Mayo's supervisor at Fort Carson, Reginald Cullers, told police that Walker was Mayo's girlfriend and that she had come from Fort Riley to see Mayo, according to an arrest warrant affidavit released Tuesday.

Fort Riley officials confirmed Walker was stationed there.

Cullers and Devon Collins, another soldier who worked with Mayo at Fort Carson, told Colorado Springs police that Mayo had told them by phone that he and Walker had quarreled Thursday, according to the affidavit. Thursday was Valentine's Day.

Mayo told them Walker had threatened his career, according to the affidavit. The affidavit did not elaborate on the alleged threat.

After his phone conversation with Mayo, Cullers went to the motel and spoke with motel employees, who summoned police.

Investigators found what appeared to be rose petals on the floor of the motel room, along with blood on bedding, clothing and a sink, the affidavit said.

It wasn't immediately known how Mayo got to North Carolina. Colorado prosecutors said Tuesday they had begun the process of bringing Mayo back to Colorado. It wasn't clear whether he would fight extradition.
