Other charges pending in high-profile Fort Lewis cases

Two other high-profile cases involving Fort Lewis soldiers are still pending.

Spc. Ivette G. Davila is charged with murder, burglary and kidnapping following the deaths of two other Fort Lewis soldiers. Investigators said Davila shot the two soldiers, took their baby and burned their bodies with acid.

Davila has been held in confinement at Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor while awaiting her Article 32 hearing. The proceeding has been delayed numerous times at the request of defense attorneys, a Fort Lewis spokesman said.

And the Army is still considering the remaining charges of conduct unbecoming an officer against Lt. Ehren Watada, who refused to deploy with his unit of 3rd Stryker Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division. An appeal to continue prosecuting him on more serious charges was dropped in May.

Watada is assigned to the I Corps Special Troops Battalion rear detachment, where he serves as an operations officer.
