Ivette Davila, who’s been accused of killing two fellow soldiers and kidnapping their child two years ago, will face the death penalty during her military court-martial.

Staff Sgt. Timothy Miller and his wife, Sgt. Randi Miller, were fatally shot in their Parkland home in the 700 block of 110th Street South on March 2, 2008. Their daughter, who was 7 months old at the time, was kidnapped but later found unharmed.

Investigators arrested Davila, a fellow Fort Lewis soldier. The military took jurisdiction of the case early on. She faces two specifications of premeditated murder.

Investigators have alleged that she fatally shot the Millers and then tried to dispose of their bodies by soaking them in muriatic acid.

Davila faced an Article 32 hearing last year. Here’s The News Tribune’s most recent story about the case.
