    WICHITA, Kan. — A former Fort Riley soldier told jurors Tuesday he was in a financial bind when he married a Jamaican woman so he could get more money from the military and she could get legal immigration status.
    The testimony came in the criminal trial of 28-year-old Shannakay Hunter in U.S. District Court in Wichita. Hunter, who lives in Bronx, N.Y., is charged with conspiracy, marriage fraud and making a false statement to the government.
    Prosecutors say the marriage was never consummated. The defense says she married for love.

      I'll never understand why people talk to investigator. Keep your mouth shut.
