Guam - U.S. Air Force Staff Sergeant Nathan Paet will be laid to rest on Wednesday. Paet was murdered outside his home in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 1. He was shot multiple times by a shooter who was waiting for him to leave his home that night. Las Vegas police have arrested four people in connection with the death that they say was premeditated.
Michael Rodriguez, Corry Hawkins, Jessica Austin and Paet's wife, Michelle Chaco Paet have been charged with murder and conspiracy. They are accused of plotting to kill Nathan Paet for insurance money his wife stood to receive upon her husband's death. The four appeared in court on Saturday, Guam time, and have preliminary hearings next week.
Nathan Paet was stationed at Nellis Air Force Base and was an F-15 Supply Section Technician assigned to the 757th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron. Memorial services will be held on Wednesday at St. Francis Catholic Church in Yona.
Nathan Paet will receive full military honors and will be laid to rest at the Veterans Cemetery.
