The US publication “Stars and Stripes” reports in its web edition that a US serviceman, Calvin Eugene Hill, has been charged with the murder of a fellow soldier, the twenty year old Ashley Turner.
Hill served in the 56th rescue squadron of the US military, stationed in Keflavík; Turner also served in an aviation unit of the US Navy.
At the time of Turner’s death, Hill was alleged to have stolen money from Turner and faced a court martial.
Hill also faces several other minor charges. If convicted for murder, he could be sentenced to death.
