COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – A soldier accused of killing his girlfriend after a Valentine’s Day quarrel has been returned to Colorado to face charges.
Sgt. Montrell Mayo is scheduled to appear by video at a court hearing in Colorado Springs Friday.
He’s suspected in the Feb. 14 strangulation death of Cpl. Kimberly Walker. Acquaintances of Mayo told police that Walker was visiting Mayo at the time. She was found dead in a Colorado Springs motel.
Mayo is from Greenville, S.C., and is stationed at Fort Carson outside Colorado Springs. Walker was from Cincinnati and was stationed at Fort Riley, Kan.
Mayo surrendered in Greenville on Feb. 17 after a murder warrant was issued. He was returned to Colorado on Thursday.
He hasn’t been formally charged. It’s not known whether he has an attorney.
