A medical team is headed to Fort Bragg this weekend hoping to offer some insight into a series of recent domestic killings on the army base.

Four Fort Bragg soldiers allegedly killed their wives this summer, two of them also took their own lives.
One area the medical team is investigating is whether an anti-malaria medication could've played a role in the murders. The drug could make people feel agitated and aggressive. Servicemen who served in Afghanistan got the drug.
Three of the four soldiers were part of special operation troops that recently returned from Afghanistan.

Roanoke Civic Center manager Jim Evans appears to be in serious trouble with the city administration.
But it's unclear just what the problem is.
A spokesman for City Manager Darlene Burcham would only say a "personnel" action is pending against Evans, but no final decision has been made. He also said Evans at this point is still employed.

(( Stephen Hughes and his coach Steven Magenbauer share the same first name and the same challenge of making the Titans a respectable team in the school's inaugural season. ((NAT SOUND:)) But the two share much more than those obvious items. Last August, Hughes was lifting weights when eh suffered what he thought was a routine headache. ((STEVEN HUGHES:))
The MRI led to more tests and a trip to the Duke University medical center where he was diagnosed of an inoperable brain tumor. But the tumor is unique and treatable with daily medication, and doctors say it is fine for him to play. ((STEVEN HUGHES:)) Steven's parents Bill and Nancy Hughes have ridden this emotional roller coaster right alongside their oldest son. Five days before the start of practice this month they collectively made one more trip to Duke to get final clearance for this season. ((STEVEN HUGHES:)) Hughes not only will play this year, but he has been named one of Hidden Valley's team captains. And whether through fate or luck - he has been placed with the perfect coach. Not only does Steve Magenbauer know his football, but he knows what it's like to lose the game you love. In 1989 as a sophomore he beat out three seniors to become Salem's starting quarterback. He also was a nasty linebacker. But on this routine hit in the playoffs against Dan River just before halftime he suffered temporary paralysis and never played football again.))
