    A Special Forces soldier has been formally charged with the murder of his pregnant spouse, according to a news release from the military.

    Sgt. 1st Class Joseph Santiago, 33, a signal support systems specialist, was charged with the murder of Meghan Santiago and the injury of an unborn child following an incident at Fort Campbell in Kentucky on September 27, the release from Fort Campbell's Public Affairs Office states.

    Santiago was taken into custody on September 28 and held, pending an investigation by the US Army Criminal Investigation Division, at the Grayson County Jail.

    "Meghan's death is a tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends," Col. Brent Lindeman, commander of 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) said in the release.

    "This tragic event has shaken our entire unit. We take all allegations of domestic violence seriously, and we will provide every resource to ensure a thorough investigation," said Lindeman.

    "The charges in this case are merely accusations and all Soldiers accused of a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty," the release adds.

    "No further information will be released at this time to protect the integrity of the ongoing investigation."

    Sgt. 1st Class Joseph Santiago, 33, a signal support systems specialist, was also charged with injuring the couple?s unborn child and he was first taken into custody Sept. 28, one day after the incident, the Army said.

    The Army did not say how or when his wife, Meghan Santiago, died. However, a senior Army enlisted soldier who spoke on condition of anonymity said she suffered a brain stem injury that left her on life support.

    Meghan Santiago’s family and friends said that Meghan was 32 weeks pregnant at the time, and her unborn child survived the attack. Meghan was officially taken off life support on Oct. 5 and her organs were donated. The family says she is survived by the baby and two small children.
