The general court-martial of a U.S. Army sergeant charged in the shooting death last April of a civilian employee on post is scheduled for this week at Fort Knox.
Sgt. Marquinta Jacobs faces a court-martial hearing Thursday and Friday beginning at 8:30 a.m. each day.
A general court-martial is the most serious level of military court, according to Fort Knox officials. It typically consists of a military judge, prosecutor, defense counsel and a panel of service members who will act as a jury.
