Soldier's court martial set for Monday

Pvt. Isaac Aguigui Pvt. Isaac Aguigui

The court martial for a Fort Stewart soldier charged with his pregnant wife's slaying is scheduled to begin Monday.

In December, Pvt. Isaac Aguigui pleaded not guilty and chose to have his case tried by a military judge alone. He is charged in the deaths of his wife Sgt. Deirdre Aguigui and their unborn child in 2011.

The military judge will hear the case, render a verdict, and determine the sentence if he's found guilty.

Investigators said Aguigui is the mastermind behind an anti-government militia group called Forever Enduring Always Ready. Other Fort Stewart-based Army soldiers were part of FEAR. They had discussed bombing areas around Savannah such as Forsyth Park and their ultimate goal was to overthrow the federal government and assassinate President Barack Obama, according to court documents.

The group was uncovered as part of the investigation of the double murder case of Pvt. Michael Roark and Tiffany York. They were murdered to keep Roark for revealing FEAR's plans, according to court documents. Their bodies were found by a fisherman at Morgan Lake in Long County in Dec. 5, 2011.

Aguigui pleaded guilty to those murder charges last summer. Two other soldiers charged in that case are still awaiting trial.
