Court-Martial at Ft. Knox to Begin Over Civilian Shooting Death

A U.S. Army sergeant faces a court-martial hearing this week at Fort Knox in the shooting death of a civilian employee last year.

Sgt. Marquinta Jacobs of Radcliff is charged with premeditated murder and aggravated assault in the April 3 death of 51-year-old Lloyd R. Gibert of Elizabethtown. Investigators say Jacobs approached Gibert in the parking lot near the Human Resources Command building where Gibert worked.

The News-Enterprise reports Jacobs' court-martial begins at 8:30 a.m. EST Thursday and Friday.
