A naval flight officer is set to be tried for allegedly attempting to strangle to death a woman in Florida in December 2017, according to charge sheets and arrest records.
Lt. Cmdr. Jason Scott Doyle faces charges of attempted murder, assault and battery, obstruction of justice, and conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman, according to charge sheets obtained by Military.com. Navy Times, which first published the charges, reported that his trial is set to begin in April.
The office of Doyle’s civilian attorney, Jeffrey Lustick, declined all comment.
Doyle, 35, was then a resident of St. Johns, Florida, according to an arrest report from the St. Johns County sheriff’s office. Doyle, the report states, was arguing with a woman identified as his ex-fiancee over the status of their relationship.
