HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Hawaii-based soldier accused of killing his wife at Schofield Barracks is set to appear in court on Thursday.

A preliminary hearing will be held for Specialist Raul Hernandez-Perez, who is charged with the murder of his 25-year-old wife, Selena Roth.

Authorities said her body was discovered inside a trash receptacle on Jan. 13 when military police conducted a welfare check requested by a family member.

Court documents showed the couple had filed for divorce in October.

Thursday’s hearing will determine if there is enough evidence to proceed to trial.
