Former Ft. Campbell soldier to face hearing in ex-wife's death

Posted: Updated:
FORT CAMPBELL, KY (WSMV) -

A former Fort Campbell soldier who has already been tried four times for murder will now appear in military court.

Brent Burke will be at Fort Campbell for an 'Article 32' hearing Friday.

The hearing is similar to a grand jury proceeding in civilian court and will determine if there is enough evidence for Burke to be court martialed.

Burke is accused of shooting and killing his ex-wife, Tracy Burke, and one of her family members in Kentucky in 2007.

The Hardin County prosecutor tried Burke four different times, but every trial ended in mistrial.
