Fort Campbell officials have announced the court martial hearing for accused murderer Brent Burke has been postponed.
The General Court Martial for Sergeant Brent Burke was scheduled for Monday, but his defense team asked it be delayed.
That motion was granted and officials say a new court martial date must now be set. Burke is accused of killing his estranged wife and former mother-in-law in Hardin County in September of 2007.
He has faced four civilian court trials and those resulted in two hung juries and two mis-trials. Court martials are much different from civilian trials in that it does not require a unanimous verdict among the jury pool to reach a conviction.
