SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) — An Air Force electronic warfare journeyman has pleaded innocent to a murder charge accusing him of stabbing and slitting his roommate's throat while they were temporarily assigned to a base in Guam. 

News agencies report that court-martial proceedings began Monday for Isaiah Edwards. He is charged with killing 20-year-old Bradley Hale of Montgomery County, Texas.

The Air Force says it cannot release Edwards' age, and won't release his hometown out of privacy and safety concerns for his family.

Shreveport man pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated on Barksdale Air Force Base.

Jesus J. Maldonado, 30, of Shreveport, pleaded guilty to one count of driving while intoxicated, fifth offense.

According to the guilty plea, a Barksdale security officer pulled over Maldonado’s vehicle on April 13, 2017 after it was seen driving erratically and bearing signs of being in a wreck. He was found to have been driving under the influence of alcohol.
