Army medic charged with rape/murder of infant daughter

A Fort Campbell soldier facing trial on charges that he murdered and raped his infant daughter has bonded out of jail, and while he is “present and accounted for” on post, he is not performing typical work duties.

Conway, a medic in the 101st Airborne Division, is reporting for duty as a soldier, but officials said he’s not performing typical duties.
Montgomery County Judge Bill Goodman on Jan. 26 agreed to reduce Conway’s bond, which at one point was $2.5 million, down to $500,000 on the condition Conway agree to GPS monitoring and a no-contact order with his wife, surviving child or her family. That bond was posted Wednesday, court records show.
A person with direct knowledge of the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told USA TODAY NETWORK that Conway is being housed in barracks on post and is being guarded by soldiers in his current unit on two-hour revolving shifts. 
The protection arrangement has had a negative effect on morale, and soldiers aren't pleased about protecting someone charged with these crimes, the source said.
Conway has not been convicted, nor has he pleaded guilty in court. He has also not been indicted by a grand jury, which according to his attorney Ed Dewerff, meets on Monday and Tuesday in Montgomery County.
Police said initially that Conway admitted to the crimes. Dewerff, who was appointed to the case, said he has not reviewed all of the evidence, but called it a “tough case.”
Conway’s case has generated intense discussion within the Fort Campbell community, many critical that he was released from jail, and others who think the Army should take its own steps to remove Conway from service. Conway, like the highly public case of Bowe Bergdahl, is still getting paid as a soldier, but his bank accounts have been levied, according to court records.
The case has also raised questions about how the Army deals with soldiers who are charged with crimes off-post.
Many speculated that Conway was performing his typical work duties, which Fort Campbell officials said is not accurate.
“The safety of all our soldiers, their families and the local community is of paramount concern, and we have policies and procedures in place to protect their well-being,” said Lt. Col. Martin O’Donnell, spokesman for the 101st Airborne.
“We fully support the local authorities as they continue to investigate this case."
Nashville attorney and former Judge Advocate General’s Corps officer Brad Tefelyan said there are policies for the Army to remove Conway from service, but it’s not easy or cut and dried.
“In this situation, you’re sort of in the military until you’re not,” Tefelyan said.
Typically, if the soldier is charged by a civilian court, the military will allow that process to complete before taking its own action. If found guilty, the soldier is typically removed from service with an other-than-honorable discharge.
“A person subject to the UCMJ who has been tried in a civilian court may, but ordinarily will not, be tried by court-martial or punished under Article 15, UCMJ, for the same act over which the civilian court has exercised jurisdiction,” Army Regulation 27-10 states.
Tefelyan said the procedures being used here are not unheard of and are fairly standard, though unique.
“That’s just the system that’s sort of set up,” he said. “It’s not like a regular job, they have a specific process to separate people.”
