Suspect to stand trial in Fort Bliss soldiers double homicide

Monday, April 8, 2013 - 4:16am

A Marine corps veteran is expected to stand trial on Monday in the shooting deaths of two Fort Bliss soldiers. Craig Graham, has been in custody since January 2012, after his bullets fatally wounded Damien Bailey and Preston Brown, according to investigators. Both of the victims were 21-years-old at the time of their death.

The shooting took place outside of Fussion Night Club in Central El Paso on January 22, 2012. Tat club is now closed. Investigators say Graham got into an altercation with Tyrone Head, his former co-defendant and a Fort Bliss soldier. Head was acquitted of two-counts of felony murder in February 2013 and returned to Fort Bliss.

Opening arguments are expected to be heard on Monday morning in the 384th District Court in El Paso. If Graham is found guilty, he will automatically serve a lifetime in prison for the capital murder charges he faces.
