HINESVILLE, Ga. (KNSI) A former Army soldier from St. Cloud is scheduled to appear in court on charges that he destroyed evidence from a double slaying to protect members of what prosecutors say was a militia group operating within the military at Fort Stewart in southeast Georgia.
Christopher Jenderseck is to appear today in Liberty County Superior Court for an evidentiary hearing. He's one of 10 current and former Fort Stewart soldiers jailed and accused by prosecutors of belonging to a group that plotted to bomb a Savannah park fountain, poison apples in Washington state and assassinate the president. Jenderseck is charged with evidence tampering and illegal gang activity.
Prosecutors say he destroyed clothing, shotgun shells and a cellphone after the December killings of former soldier Michael Roark and his girlfriend, Tiffany York.
Jenderseck is a 2004 graduate of Apollo High School.
