He loved heavy metal and Jimi Hendrix, had kicked around in the Marines and Navy as a musician before joining the Army, and now SSGT Robert Chiaravallotti will be lucky to spend the rest of his life behind bars if a military judge accepts a plea bargain deal.
The 41 year-old skinhead, who was slated to ship out for South Korea with the Eighth Army band, will be going to Leavenworth DB instead.
He has pleaded guilty to stabbing his wife to death and then raping a 14 year-old step-daughter.
The Joint Base Lewis-McChord NCO and Afghanistan veteran did four years in the Marines as a musician, then transferred to the Navy for almost a decade before donning Army green.
SLAIN WIFE HAD ENDURED HARD LIFE
Investigators say the brutal slaying took place August 25, 2012. No motive was given.
Dionne, 39, had five children by Chiaravallotti and two previous husbands. Despite her hard life, she got her GED and had hope for the future.
Now she's in a grave. She would have been 40 years old on Thanksgiving Day.
