Trial of Ga. soldier in wife’s death enters day 3
Question of the Day
FORT STEWART, Ga. (AP) - Witnesses for Army prosecutors are scheduled to take the witness stand for a third day in the court-martial of a Georgia-based soldier charged with killing his pregnant wife so he could pocket $500,000 in life insurance and benefit payments.
Pvt. Isaac Aguigui (AH-gee-gee) of Cashmere, Wash., faces an automatic life sentence if he’s convicted of murder in the July 2011 death of his wife, Sgt. Deirdre Aguigui, at their apartment on Fort Stewart. Trial testimony was scheduled to resume Wednesday morning.
A key remaining prosecution witness is Dr. James Downs, a Georgia state medical examiner who refutes the conclusions of a military autopsy that determined Deirdre Aguigui’s cause of death was unknown. Aguigui was charged after Downs offered a second opinion last year that the woman was choked or suffocated.
