Ft. Lewis Soldier Accused Of Murder, Abduction

TACOMA, Wash. - A 22-year-old Fort Lewis soldier is under investigation in the killing of two other soldiers and the abduction of the couple's 7-month-old girl.
Department spokesman Ed Troyer says the female soldier will be booked into the Pierce County Jail in Tacoma.

Troyer says deputies, acting on information from the U.S. Army, went to a home in the county on Sunday and found two people, a man and a woman, dead. The couple was believed to have been married. They were described medics at Madigan Army Medical Center at Fort Lewis.
The victims are believed to be in their early- to mid-20s and appeared to have died from gunshot wounds, thought to have been inflicted on Saturday. They have not been identified.
The infant girl belonging to the couple was missing from the home and was found with the Fort Lewis soldier. The baby was not harmed and is in the care of the state's Child Protective Services agency.

Troyer says investigators are not sure of the relationship between the woman soldier who is in custody and the dead couple.
