Investigators now say a pregnant Kentucky soldier found dead in a hotel bath tub was murdered.

Specialist Megan Touma's body was found last week in a North Carolina motel room. Touma, who was seven months pregnant, was serving at Fort Bragg.

Police say they do have a person of interest who is also a soldier at Fort Bragg.

Investigators have not said how the Kenton County native was killed.
