FORT STEWART, Ga. — The fate of an Army soldier charged with killing his pregnant wife may hinge on whether a military judge accepts a single medical expert’s conclusion that she was strangled as sufficient evidence for a conviction.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys gave closing arguments today in the court-martial of 22-year-old Pvt. Isaac Aguigui of Cashmere who faces a life sentence if convicted of murder in the July 2011 death of Sgt. Deirdre Aguigui. Attorneys fiercely debated evidence given by medical experts in the case.
