Soldiers Charged Plot
Defendant Pvt. Christopher Salmon walks into the courtroom during a preliminary hearing at Long County Superior Court, Thursday Aug. 30, 2012, in Ludowici, Ga. District Attorney Tom Durden announced in court that he will seek the death penalty for Salmon, Pvt. Isaac Aguigui, and Sgt. Anthony Peden. The three Fort Stewart soldiers are accused of malice murder, felony murder and criminal gang activity in the Dec. 4 slayings of former soldier Michael Roark and his girlfriend, 17-year-old Tiffany York. The two were found shot to death off a dirt road near the Army post. Prosecutors say the accused men were part of a militia operating within the U.S. Army that was stockpiling weapons and wanted to overthrow the federal government. (AP Photo/Stephen Morton)
