BOLLING AFB, DC --
A military jury of eight Air Force officers and six enlisted members found Airman Calvin Eugene Hill not guilty of the August 14, 2005 premeditated murder of Airman Ashley Turner while the two were stationed at Naval Air Station Keflavik, Iceland, as well as a related obstruction of justice charge. The verdict was announced May 16.
Airman Turner was found in a small, third-floor room adjacent to a day room where fitness and other recreation equipment was used by dormitory residents, and taken to Keflavik Naval Hospital, where she was pronounced dead just before 11 p.m. An autopsy determined the cause of death to be a stab wound and blunt-force trauma to the head.
Airman Hill had earlier pleaded guilty to larceny/wrongful appropriation of about $2,700 from Airman Turner's bank account, making false official statements and absent without leave. A pre-sentencing hearing is scheduled for 1 p.m. May 17 on those charges.
