Two active-duty personnel are sitting in jail and one is dead after a love triangle murder took place in Michigan during block leave.
Spc. Kemia Hassel, 22, was arrested by Berrien County officials on Saturday on a charge of murder of a family member with a gun, according to court records.
She is accused of killing Army Sgt. Tyrone Hassel III, who was stationed at Fort Stewart, after he brought food for her on New Year’s Eve.
“After leaving her the food, he was returning to his pickup truck in the driveway of that home to return to Lincoln Street when he was confronted by an assailant who shot and killed him,” prosecutors said.
Another Fort Stewart soldier, Jeremy Cuellar, whom was having an affair with Kemia Hassel, is accused of ambushing and shooting Tyrone Hassel.
Cullar was taken into custody in Liberty County, Georgia.
According to WFMZ, Hassel and Cuellar plotted murdering her husband to collect his life insurance, which she has already collected since his death -around $100,000.
“An investigation by the Army CID (Criminal Investigation Division) unit at Fort Stewart and follow up investigation by investigators here in Berrien County including officers from the St. Joseph Township Police Department, the Berrien County Sheriff’s Department detective bureau, the Berrien County Homicide Task Force and the Michigan State Police, has led to murder charges against two individuals,” prosecutors said in a statement.
