Fort Hood soldier Cory Grafton arrested for Chelsea Cheatham murder

A Fort Hood soldier was arrested for the murder of a 32-year-old woman found dead in a room at a Days Inn motel last July, authorities said.

Cory Gafton, 20, was arrested and charged Tuesday afternoon with the murder of Chelsea Cheatham in July 2019, ending a multi-year in-depth investigation. According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, one of Gafton’s colleagues told authorities the 20-year-old soldier confessed to killing Cheatham.

A spokesperson for Fort Hood, a U.S. Army post, did not immediately respond to the Daily Beast’s request for comment. Grafton is currently being held at Killeen City Prison.
