Fort Riley soldier killed in Iraq

FORT RILEY, Kan. (AP) _ A Fort Riley soldier from Oklahoma was killed this week in Balad, Iraq, of noncombat-related injuries, the Department of Defense reported Friday.

Spc. Jeffrey S. Henthorn, 25, of Choctaw, Okla., died Tuesday, the military said. He was assigned to the 24th Transportation Company and was in Iraq as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

A Fort Riley spokesman Friday night said he did not have any information on the details of Henthorn's death.

About 120 soldiers with the 24th Transportation Company, 541st Maintenance Battalion, 937th Engineer Group deployed on Dec. 26 for a second tour in Iraq.

As of Friday, at least 1,455 U.S. military members have died since the war in Iraq began in March 2003.
