NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A former Fort Campbell soldier whose conviction in the slayings of four Taco Bell employees was overturned is now facing a robbery charge from 1994.

The state is currently deciding whether to retry David G. Housler of Radcliff, Ky., in the case in which employees were shot at the Clarksville Taco Bell, also in 1994.

Housler's attorney said his client served 15 years in prison for a crime he didn't commit, and now the state is using the robbery charge to pressure his client while deciding whether to retry him on the murder charges.

The lead prosecutor said the Taco Bell case is one of the most heinous crimes ever committed in Middle Tennessee and it's important that neither the wrong person is convicted nor the guilty escape punishment.
