— A teenager accused of killing a Fort Bragg Special Forces soldier and another teenager is coming back to North Carolina to face double murder charges.

James Stitt, 19, was arrested in New York early February for the murders of George Daniel Katsigiannis, 21, and Jenna Bologna, 16.

At the time of the murders, Stitt had recently moved to Fayetteville from Brooklyn, N.Y., where he shared a residence with the victims.

A group of soldiers who worked with Katsigiannis discovered the bodies when they went to the home to find out why their friend failed to show up for work.

Katsigiannis was a member of the Army's 3rd Special Forces Group stationed at Fort Bragg.

If found guilty, Stitt could face capital murder charges.
