Ft.Riley Soldier Found Dead in Colorado

riley (1)

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Authorities say a woman found dead in a Colorado motel was an Army corporal from Fort Riley, Kan. Another soldier believed to be her boyfriend is being held in North Carolina on suspicion of murder. Police said Tuesday that Kimberly Walker had been strangled and had a blunt force injury. She was found Sunday in a Colorado Springs motel. Army Sergeant Montrell Lamar Anderson Mayo, who was stationed at Fort Carson outside Colorado Springs, surrendered to police in Greenville, North Carolina, on Sunday. An arrest warrant affidavit quotes other soldiers as saying Walker was Mayo's girlfriend and that she had come from Fort Riley to see Mayo. Mayo is being held without bail. Colorado prosecutors have begun the process of extraditing him. Jail records didn't indicate whether he had an attorney.
