Army: Soldier Charged in 3 Afghan Civilian Deaths
JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. (AP) - The Army says a soldier has been charged with murder in three Afghan civilian deaths.
About 10 members of an Army unit based at Fort Lewis, Wash., have been under investigation for as many as three civilian deaths in Afghanistan, along with other potential wrongdoing, a senior military official said last month.
The official did not have details of the investigation but confirmed that the 5th Stryker Brigade was under scrutiny.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss details of an investigation being conducted in Afghanistan.
