FORT CARSON, Colo. — The Army has filed murder charges against a Fort Carson soldier accused of killing his soldier-girlfriend during a Valentine's Day quarrel in a Colorado motel.

Fort Carson announced Friday that Sgt. Montrell Mayo is charged with premeditated murder and murder in the death of Cpl. Kimberly Walker.

The 28-year-old Walker was from Cincinnati and was stationed at Fort Riley. Friends of Mayo's said she was visiting Mayo at the time she was killed.

Walker's body was found in an off-post motel in Colorado Springs. Civilian prosecutors say they turned the case over to the Army at the Army's request.

The 24-year-old Mayo is from Greenville, S.C., and is stationed at Fort Carson.

If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of life without parole, forfeiture of pay and a dishonorable discharge.
