A U.S. Army spouse at Fort Eisenhower has been indicted on two counts of murder by a federal grand jury.



April Evalyn Short, 30, of Fort Eisenhower – formerly Fort Gordon – was indicted on charges of Premeditated Murder and Felony Murder, said Jill E. Steinberg, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Georgia.



The indictment alleges that on Nov. 15, 2023, at Fort Eisenhower, Short killed her 11-month-old child by "stabbing and cutting... with an edged weapon while engaged in the knowing and willful perpetration of child abuse."



Short is in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service and awaits further proceedings. She is considered innocent unless and until proven guilty.



The case is being investigated by Department of the Army Criminal Investigation Division with assistance from the FBI, and prosecuted for the United States by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Henry W. Syms Jr. and Patricia G. Rhodes.
