The latest attempt to prosecute Sgt. Brent Burke for the 2007 killings of two women in Rineyville hit another snag Friday when the U.S. Army announced a continuance was granted for the defense team.
Burke’s general court-martial was scheduled to start Monday at Fort Campbell, where he once served. A new trial date has not been set, according to a U.S. Army news release.
Burke is accused of shooting his estranged wife, Tracy Burke, and her former mother-in-law, Brenda Comer, on Sept. 11, 2007, in Comer’s Rineyville home.
