Man charged with killing wife and police officer from NH to appear in court

The Associated Press

WOODBRIDGE, Va. (AP) — An Army staff sergeant charged with killing his wife and a northern Virginia police officer who was on her first day on the job is set to appear in court.

An arraignment is scheduled for Monday for 32-year-old Ronald Hamilton, a Pentagon worker. Commonwealth's Attorney Paul Ebert has said he'll likely seek the death penalty against Hamilton, who is being held without bond on charges including capital murder, first-degree murder and malicious wounding.

Prince William County Police Chief Stephan Hudson says Hamilton and his wife, Crystal, had been arguing all day Saturday, but it escalated after she called 911. He says Hamilton fatally shot his wife and then fired at the arriving officers, killing Officer Ashley Guindon and seriously wounding two others before he surrendered.
