A Fort Carson soldier accused of sexually assaulting two teenagers and killing one of them now faces a charge of sexual exploitation of a child.

The new charge was filed Thursday against 21-year-old Spc. Robert Hull Marko.

Prosecutors say a DVD containing child pornography was found at Marko's home. It wasn't immediately clear if the new charge related to either of the other two cases against him.

Marko faces charges of first-degree murder, sexual assault, assault and kidnapping in the death of 19-year-old Judilianna "Judi" Lawrence on Oct. 13.

He also faces charges in the sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl five days before Lawrence was killed. A preliminary hearing in that case is scheduled for April 23.
