A soldier from Pike County is one of the victims of a friendly-fire incident in Afghanistan.

The family of 25-year-old Justin Helton says the Pike County native was one of five soldiers killed this week when U.S. fighter jets accidentally fired on his unit.

Helton was an explosives-disposal expert in the Army who was planning to get married when he returned from Afghanistan.
