A Marine allegedly stabbed his pregnant ex-wife to death following an argument on a bustling Hawaii highway — even as passersby and commuters hopped out of their own vehicles and desperately tried to stop him.
Army Lt. Gen. Bryan Fenton and Marine Corps Lt. Gen. Michael Langley told senators Thursday that they are prepared to counter terrorism threats and Chinese and Russian influence and prioritize troop well-being if confirmed to lead Special Operations Command and Africa Command respectively.
If confirmed, Michael E. Langley would be based in Stuttgart, assuming control of roughly 6,000 U.S. troops in Africa, including about 1,300 in West Africa and about 3,500 at a base in Djibouti, a spokeswoman said.
A heavily redacted report prepared by the Marines and given to Pvt. 1st Class Dalton Beals’ mother states her son died of hyperthermia and that the death was avoidable. The report recommended “punitive or administrative action.”
