FORT CARSON, Colo. (AP) - A Fort Carson soldier faces a military trial on charges of killing another soldier while they were deployed in Jordan.

The court-martial for Spc. Jeffery T. Page is scheduled to start Monday.

Page faces three counts of murder in the May 2014 shooting death of 19-year-old Spc. Adrian M. Perkins. If convicted, he could face life in prison.

Page’s attorneys have argued the shooting was an accident and that Page tried to save Perkins’ life after the shooting.

Charging documents say Perkins was shot with an M4 rifle. Few other details have been released.

Page is from Perrysburg, Ohio. Perkins was from Pine Valley, California. Both were assigned to Fort Carson.
