Asan Akbar
Convicted in the 2003 murders of Captain Christopher Seifert and Major Gregory Stone and wounding 14 other soldiers when he rolled two grenades into soldiers' tents and began firing his assault rifle at those who tried to flee the tents.

Ronald Gray
Convicted of Raping and killing Army Pvt. Laura Lee Vickery-Clay of Fayetteville on Dec. 15, 1986. She was shot four times with a .22-caliber pistol that Gray confessed to stealing. She suffered blunt force trauma over much of her body.
Raping and killing Kimberly Ann Ruggles, a civilian cab driver in Fayetteville. She was bound, gagged, stabbed repeatedly, and had bruises and lacerations on her face. Her body was found on the base.
Raping, robbing and attempting to kill Army Pvt. Mary Ann Lang Nameth in her barracks at Fort Bragg on Jan. 3, 1987. She testified against Gray during the court-martial and identified him as her assailant. Gray raped her and stabbed her several times in the neck and side. Nameth suffered a laceration of the trachea and a collapsed or punctured lung.

Timothy Hennis
Timothy B. Hennis was sentenced to death today for a 1985 triple murder.
The jury deliberated for 13 hours over three days before reaching its verdict, which was announced at 2:51 p.m. today. Hennis showed no reaction. One of his lawyers put an arm around him and Hennis' wife, Angela, began to weep.
Hennis will also be reduced in rank to E-1, forfeit all pay and benefits, and be dishonorably discharged from the military for the murder of Kathryn Eastburn and two of her young daughters Erin and Kara.
Gary Eastburn, her widower, said afterward he believed the sentence was appropriate. He said he doesn't care if the death sentence is ever carried out as long as Hennis remains behind bars.
Eastburn called Hennis a coward and said he can never forgive him.
"I can't describe how angry I am at him," Eastburn said.
Frank Spinner, one of Hennis' lawyers, said he will continue to fight for Hennis through the appeals process.
"Timothy Hennis has maintained his innocence from day one," Spinner said.
Spinner said Hennis' family wanted to express their sympathy to Kathryn Eastburn's relatives. He said Hennis' family is standing by him.
"They love him as a husband, as a father and a grandfather now, and as a brother," Spinner said.
The attorney said he is still contesting the Army's jurisdiction over the case.
The Army took up the case in 2006 after DNA evidence, previously untested, linked Hennis to the murder scene.
During the trial, Spinner argued that Hennis' DNA, found present in Kathryn Eastburn's body, could have originated during consensual sex days before she was killed.
Sentenced to Death 4/15/10.

Dwight J. Loving
Loving was an Army private stationed at Fort Hood, Texas. On the night of December 11, 1988, he committed two armed robberies of convenience stores, netting less than $100. He then decided to rob some cab drivers. On December 12, during the course of those robberies, Loving murdered two taxicab drivers and attempted to murder a third.
The court-martial evidence, which included Loving's undisputed videotaped confession, established the following facts: the first robbery and murder victim, Pvt. Christopher Fay, was an active duty soldier working for extra money as a cab driver. At approximately 8:00 p.m. on December 12, Fay drove Loving from Killeen, Texas, to a secluded area of Fort Hood, where Loving robbed him at gunpoint. After taking Fay's money, Loving shot Fay in the back of the head. While watching blood "gushing out" of Fay's head, Loving shot him in the back of the head a second time. Fay's dead body was discovered by another soldier at Fort Hood a short while later.
Loving, after fleeing to his Fort Hood barracks, called for a second cab at 8:15 that same evening. The second cab, driven by retired Army Sergeant Bobby Sharbino, drove Loving from Fort Hood to a secluded street in Killeen, Texas. Loving then robbed Sharbino at gunpoint, ordered him to lie down on the seat, and murdered him by shooting him in the head.

Kenneth Parker
Parker was convicted in July 1993 at Camp Lejeune, N.C., of being the triggerman in two killings: the March 1992 murder of Lance Cpl. Rodney L. Page in Jacksonville, N.C., and the killing of Lance Cpl. Christopher Q. James, who he shot with the same 12-gauge shotgun four days later.

Andrew Witt
Senior Airman Andrew P. Witt was convicted in October 2005 at Robins Air Force Base, Ga., of stabbing to death Senior Airman Andy Schliepsiek and his wife, Jamie, on July 5, 2004, in their home on base. He also was convicted of stabbing Jason King, a friend of the couple who survived the attack.
