Army Officer’s Military Trial Delayed by Military Judge

“MAJ Christian Martin’s General Court Martial has been officially delayed by the military judge as of today.  It has not been re-docketed so there is no new date to report at this time,” wrote Army LTC Chevelle Thomas in an email message I received at 3:22 p.m. Central today.

The breaking news from Colonel Thomas, a public affairs officer at Fort Campbell, Ky., comes barely four hours after she provided very brief answers to four questions I had asked Monday regarding the upcoming military trial of Maj. Christian “Kit” Martin, a man about whom I’ve written dozens of articles during the past four months.

Does this mean the “wheels of justice” might finally be rolling in Major Martin’s direction? Only time will tell.

In case you missed them, I shared two other pieces about this case earlier today:

• Multiple Bodies Found Near Fort Campbell as Army Officer’s Trial on Sexual Assault Charges Only One Week Away; and

• Is Army Trying to Destroy Officer’s Chance for Fair Trial?

Stay tuned for updates!
