A court-martial is ongoing in Louisiana for an airman accused in a murder that happened here on Guam. KSLA reports that defense and prosecutors spent much of the day reviewing evidence they plan to use during the trial for Airman 1st Class Isaiah Edwards.

That included witness testimony, 911 calls and extremely graphic photos from the crime scene at which point the victim, Bradley Hale's, family and friends excused themselves from the courtroom.

On March 26, last year, first responders found Hale dead inside his dormitory on Andersen Air Force Base. His death had been ruled a homicide. Hale was stabbed to death. The Barksdale Air Force Base airmen were deployed to Guam when the incident occurred.

The victim's father, Rodney Hale, attended the proceedings.

"I'm just here seeking justice for my first born son and hopefully everything comes out like it's supposed to. You know, things that he went for in the Air Force, he wanted to become a pilot. It was kind of cut slim. I'm here just to get justice for him," he said.

Edwards has since pleaded not guilty to the charges.

He opted to undergo a trial by officers for the general court-martial, which means at least five members on the jury will be Air Force officers.

Jury selection is ongoing.
