A soldier from Federal Way has been killed in Iraq, though few details about her death have been released.

The body of Spc. Erin L. McLyman arrived at Dover Air Force Base, Del., aboard a military aircraft early Monday morning. The identification of McLyman was released by the Air Force Mortuary Affairs Operations Center at Dover Air Force Base, Del.

The Pentagon has yet to release more details about McLyman. Such a release, which often trails the initial notification from Dover by up to a day, includes age, unit, service history and more details about the fatal incident.
