It has been reported that SPC Logan Kyle has been convicted by a military judge during a general court-martial trial held at Fort Polk on June 4, 2019.
Under a plea agreement Kyle plead guilty to one allegation of premeditated murder and one allegation of death of an unborn child, violations of Articles 118 and 119a under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).
The military judge sentenced Kyle to be confined in prison for life with the possibility of parole, a reduction in rank to E1, a forfeiture of all pay and allowances and a dishonorable discharge from the Army.
In October 2018 Kyle and his reported girlfriend Sarah Parker, 24, of Moss Bluff, were pulled over on North Franklin Street in Lake Charles by the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office (CPSO). CPSO had been alerted bythe Beauregard Parish Sheriff's Office (BPSO) that the couple could be headed to the Lake Charles area after someone close to Parker called BPSO to report that Parker was driving around with a body in the trunk of her car.
While conducting a search of the car, deputies found two young children in the back seat, a one year old and a two year old, belonging to Parker. In the truck deputies found Shelena Kyle, 22, the deceased wife of SPC Kyle.
During questioning, Kyle confessed to murdering his wife and, according to CPSO, he and Parker were looking for a place to dump her body when they were pulled over.
Parker was also arrested and charged with obstruction of justice and failure to report a homicide. Two additional charges of contributing to the delinquency of juveniles in the commission of a felony was added days after her initial arrest.
Parker remains in custody in Calcasieu Parish and her trail is still pending. On the day of her arrest Parker’s children were placed in the custody of their father.
