Fort Bragg soldier suspected of killing pregnant wife and himself, police say


A soldier assigned to Army Special Operations Command at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, is suspected of killing his pregnant wife and then himself Sunday evening, according to local police.


Staff Sgt. Keith Lewis, 31, was found dead from what police believe was a self-inflicted gunshot wound just after 7 p.m. at his home in the 900 block of Willow Street in Fayetteville.


Lewis’ pregnant 34-year-old wife, Sarah Lewis, was taken to a hospital after sustaining gunshot injuries, but she and her unborn child later died.


Fayetteville police officer Lt. Lori Holloway confirmed over the telephone that Keith Lewis was the suspected perpetrator of the shootings, which occurred after a domestic altercation.


The couple’s 3-year-old daughter was on scene at the time of the incident but she was not injured, police said in a statement. That daughter is now in the care of local family members.
