A Fort Bragg soldier accused of killing his girlfriend and then shooting himself in the head has been formally charged with murder.

Investigators say 47-year-old Michael Lloyd Williams had been hospitalized since the shooting on Jeffrey Drive in Fayetteville May 12.

A booking photograph showed Williams wearing a helmet to protect his head after medical treatment.

He was charged with first-degree murder after his release from Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.

Williams was assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg and had been involved in a seven-year relationship with 24-year-old Stephanie Thompson.
