The Army on Friday evening confirmed the names of two 101st Airborne Division soldiers who were killed following a domestic dispute near Fort Campbell, Kentucky.
They were Spc. Priscilla A. East, 32, and Spc. Christopher R. Hoch, 28. Hoch was posthumously promoted to sergeant.
Both soldiers were shot and killed at about 6:30 p.m. Thursday in Oak Grove, Kentucky.
Local authorities said the two soldiers were killed and a juvenile was injured following a domestic dispute near Fort Campbell. Kentucky State Police said in a statement that it appears Jeremy Demar, 35, of Clarksville, Tennessee, was involved in a domestic dispute with East, his estranged wife, according to the Associated Press.
Demar found East at a home in Oak Grove, where he forced his way in Thursday night and fatally shot her and Hoch.
The state police said a teenager received minor injuries in a confrontation with Demar, who fled with a young child, according to the AP. Demar was later arrested; the child wasn't injured.
Demar has been charged with murder, murder-domestic violence, burglary and assault.
East, who was from Missouri City, Texas, was a health care specialist who joined the Army in March 2011. She had been at Fort Campbell since August 2014. A photo of East was not available Friday evening.
Hoch, who was from Ferndale, Michigan, was an infantryman who joined the Army in January 2013. He had been at Fort Campbell since June 2013.
The Kentucky State Police is leading the investigation. The Army said in a statement it would not be releasing any additional information because of the ongoing investigation.
