VIDALIA, Ga. -- A current Third Infantry Division soldier and a former soldier were killed in what civilian law enforcement investigators are calling a domestic dispute over the weekend.
Dead are Spc. Samuel Tellu and Miranda Nichols. Nichols was found dead with a gunshot outside of her mother’s home in Vidalia Saturday, said Kevin Larson, Fort Stewart spokesman.
Tellu was also found dead with a gunshot inside his vehicle in nearby Montgomery County on Sunday.
Tellu was assigned to the 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade, 3rd ID, as a petroleum specialist. He had one deployment, fall 2009 to fall 2010, to Afghanistan.
Nichols served in the 3rd ID and the Georgia National Guard.
The incident remains under investigation; agents from the U.S. Army’s Criminal Investigation Command are assisting.
