SAVANNAH, Ga. — Federal prosecutors say a man has been charged in the killing of the wife of a deployed soldier on an Army post in Georgia.

U.S. Attorney Bobby Christine said in a news release that 27-year-old Stafon Davis of Savannah was charged in the July 9, 2018, shooting death of 24-year-old Abree Boykin at Fort Stewart.

Christine says the indictment unsealed Thursday charges Davis with premeditated murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Davis was being held in the Palm Beach County jail in West Palm Beach, Florida, but prosecutors said he would have to be returned to Georgia to face the charges. It wasn't immediately clear whether Davis had an attorney who could comment on the charges.

Boykin’s body was found in her home by military police.
