Duo to Return to Maryland to Face Trial In Ft. Meade Soldier’s Death

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A federal judge has ordered that a soldier stationed in San Antonio and his girlfriend be returned to Maryland to face charges related to the shooting death of his wife, a fellow soldier.

According to The San Antonio Express-News, 35-year-old Army Sgt. Maliek Kearney was denied bail during a court hearing Tuesday.

Kearney’s girlfriend, 31-year-old Dolores Delgado, waived her bail hearing Tuesday.

Federal prosecutors in Maryland have indicted Kearney and Delgado each on a charge of interstate travel to commit domestic violence resulting in death.

During Tuesday’s hearing, an FBI agent testified the couple’s 5-month-old daughter was placed in Ramirez’s arms by Kearney after he shot her. The infant was unharmed.
