Authorities say a soldier based in Louisiana was arrested in a car with his wife's body in the trunk, their two toddlers in the car, and his girlfriend driving.
A Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office statement says 22-year-old Logan Kyle was turned over to Army investigators at Fort Polk; 24-year-old Sarah Parker of Lake Charles was arrested on charges including failure to report a homicide; and the 1- and 2-year-old children are in state custody.
Fort Polk spokeswoman Kim Reichsling says Kyle is in custody. She says she cannot release his wife's name until Tuesday because Army regulations require a 24-hour wait after notifying next-of-kin.
The sheriff's office says deputies got a tip about a woman with a dead body in her trunk and stopped Parker's car Sunday night.
Authorities believe that Kyle killed his wife on Fort Polk and then later picked up Parker to help find a place to dispose the body. She could also face charges related to the children being endangered in the car.
Parker's bond was still pending. It was unclear if she had a lawyer.
