TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — A $2 million bail has been set for a soldier accused of fatally stabbing a fellow serviceman near a large Army base in Washington state.
Prosecutors charged Jeremiah Hill, 23, with first-degree murder, saying he approached 20-year-old Spc. Tevin Geike and attacked him just as a verbal confrontation between two groups was calming down. The bail was set at a Tuesday afternoon court hearing.
Authorities also charged Cedarium Johnson, 21, and Ajoni Runnion-Bareford, 21, with rendering criminal assistance, saying they helped dispose of the murder weapon. Bail for Runnion-Bareford was set at $250,000. Johnson was released, ordered to be contained at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
All three men pleaded not guilty.
