PYONGTAEK, South Korea — The Army private accused in the barracks-room stabbing death of a sergeant in South Korea will stand trial May 9 at Camp Henry in Taegu, the Army said Tuesday.

Pfc. Gregory David Robertson of the 20th Area Support Group at Camp Henry is charged with murder, obstructing justice and disobeying an order in connection with the February stabbing of Sgt. Kenneth Lamond Kelly at Camp Carroll in Waegwan.

Robertson also is charged with burglary and indecent assault in connection with another incident. He is accused of breaking into and entering the barracks room of an unnamed soldier in November 2004 “with intent to commit an indecent assault,” according to the Army.

Assigned as military judge for the court-martial is Army Col. Patrick Parrish of the 6th Judicial Circuit at Yongsan Garrison in Seoul. Robertson remains in pre-trial confinement at Camp Humphreys in Pyongtaek, the Army said.
