Army to prosecute in Fort Lewis killings
by UPI

FORT LEWIS, Wash. - The Army says it will try a female soldier suspected of shooting an Army couple near Fort Lewis, Wash., pouring acid on their bodies and taking their baby.

Spc. Ivette Davila, 22, of Bakersfield, Calif., was transferred into Army custody Wednesday and is expected to be charged Thursday.

Davila is suspected in the weekend slayings of Staff Sgt. Timothy Miller, 27, and his wife, Sgt. Randi Miller, 25, at their home in Parkland. Both victims were medics at Fort Lewis who served in Iraq. Davila served as a chemical operations specialist.

The Tacoma News Tribune said Pierce County deputies believe Davila killed the Millers, placed their bodies in a bathtub and poured acid on them in an attempt to cover up the crime.

Authorities allege Davila showed up on base with the couple's 6-month-old daughter, Kassidy, and eventually confessed to another soldier, The Army Times reported Wednesday.

Deputy County Prosecutor Edmund Murphy said in a court document that Davila allegedly told the soldier Randi Miller was in a relationship with her ex-boyfriend, also a soldier, "who had apparently chose Randi Miller over Davila."

A non-military handgun allegedly was recovered from Davila's barracks, along with a receipt for the acid and Randi Miller's purse.
