A former Fort Campbell soldier convicted of taking part in a quadruple murder at a Clarksville Taco Bell 19 years ago will receive a new trial.
That's after the Tennessee Court of Appeals ruled 39-year old David Gene Housler had shoddy legal representation the first time around, when he was sentenced to four consecutive life sentences. Kevin Campbell, Angela Wyatt, Patricia Price and Marsha Klopp were all shot to death execution style at the restaurant in 1994.
Another former soldier, 38-year old Courtney Matthews, was convicted of being the gunman in the killings. Housler was convicted of being the lookout and getaway driver.
The Court of Appeal's decision was only an upholding of a previous ruling from Montgomery County Judge John Gasaway, who said Housler's attorneys failed to challenge multiple aspects of a plea agreement that fell through.
No new trial date has been set for Housler.
