FAIRBANKS, ALASKA — A 23-year-old soldier was charged Wednesday with premeditated murder and kidnapping in the death of his 3-year-old son at the family’s home at Fort Wainwright, the Army said.

Sgt. Nathaniel E. Ulroan also has been charged with assault and communicating a threat, the Army said in a statement.

Details of the death were not provided.

Military police found the child dead Friday. Ulroan was treated at a Fairbanks hospital for unspecified injuries related to the child’s death, then taken to the Fairbanks Correctional Center.

The combat engineer originally from Berea, Ohio, is awaiting an Army pretrial hearing to determine whether sufficient evidence exists to warrant a court-martial. He’s assigned to the 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division.

Previously stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington state, he deployed to Iraq for three months and Afghanistan for 11 months.

He joined the Army in October 2008 and was assigned to Fort Wainwright in December 2012.
