FORT CAMPBELL, KY (WSMV) -

Prosecutors have failed four times to get a conviction in the death of a Kentucky woman, but that's not stopping her family from filing civil charges.

Attorneys for Tracy Burke's brother and her two children are suing her former husband, Brent Burke, for wrongful death.

Investigators said he shot his wife and another woman at her home in Kentucky in 2007.

The case has gone to trial four times and each time it has ended in a mistrial.

Burke, who was an Army Sergeant stationed at Fort Campbell, is facing a military court martial.
