Prosecutor: Soldier accused of killing wife met lover online
Catherine and Michael Walker

HONOLULU (AP) - A federal prosecutor says the Army medic accused of conspiring with his lover to kill his wife met the other woman online.
A judge ordered Sgt. Michael Walker held without bail Monday. In arguing for Walker not to be released, Assistant U.S. Attorney Jill Otake told the judge Walker communicated with Ailsa Jackson online.
An indictment accuses the two of plotting Catherine Walker's murder to make it look like a burglary. Catherine Walker was found stabbed to death last November in the military home she shared with her husband in Honolulu. According to court records, Jackson is expected to plead guilty later this month.
Michael Walker has pleaded not guilty. Defense attorney Birney Bervar says Walker has remained in Hawaii despite knowing about the investigation for about a year.
