Soldier convicted of killing fellow soldier he caught in bed with his wife

The Fort Carson Soldier who allegedly killed a fellow Soldier after finding him in bed with his wife was found guilty of felony reckless manslaughter and felony menacing on Tuesday.

In March, 20-year-old Private First Class Isaiah Towns pleaded not guilty to a second-degree murder charge in connection to the November 17 death of Sergeant Shakir D. Cook-Troynel.

Towns had reportedly come home in the early morning hours to the sound of “moans coming from the master bedroom.”

Upon entering the bedroom door, he found his wife -Ashley Charmain Mary Pace- in a state of undress and Cook-Troynel standing in the closet.

Demanding answers, Towns produced a firearm and confronted Cook-Troynel, but inadvertently discharged his firearm after pace reportedly shouted at him and pushed him.

Pace and Towns had only been married for six weeks, and Pace had requested a divorce the day prior. Cook-Troynel and Pace had previously conceived a child together.

Prior to his death, Cook-Troynel had served since May of 2015 and had one tour in Afghanistan under his belt.
