An Army veteran married to a military spouse was found dead at the Schofield Barracks on Wednesday, Jan. 13, and a soldier has been arrested in connection to the homicide.
Selena Roth, 25, was found by Military Police personnel conducting a welfare check requested by a family member, the U.S. Army announced. Roth's death was determined to be a homicide, but the Army did not immediately release further details.
Joanne Roth, the victim's mother, said Selena Rother was seen with someone “at Subway on Sunday and he is being questioned,” the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports. Joanne Roth's granddaughter had previously been placed with Child Welfare Services, “so thankfully she is safe,” she said.
