Three separate courts-martial proceedings will take place starting next month in the case against Senior Airman Charles Amos Wilson III at the Houston County Courthouse in Perry, Georgia.  

A military judge recently ruled to sever the proceedings against Wilson, who is accused of the premeditated murder of Tameda Ferguson and her unborn child; the death of Demetrius Hardy which occurred during the arson of the accused's rental property; and the assault and subsequent threats against a retired, female technical sergeant.

On May 23, Wilson will be tried for the felony murder, arson and related charges that occurred on or about Oct. 2, 2011. The second court martial is set for June 6 which includes the alleged assault between Wilson and the female technical sergeant, on or about July 20, 2012. The last court martial date has yet to be determined.

However, it will include charges related to the alleged premeditated murder of Ferguson, Wilson's fiancee, and her unborn child on or about Aug. 29, 2013.

The first two charges carry felony convictions and the third a capital murder charge which could result in the death penalty.

It's important to note that a charge is merely  an accusation. Wilson    is presumed innocent until  and unless proven   guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
