Murder Counts Brought Against Haditha Sargent

From a joyous Associated Press:

Haditha: Marine Faces 13 Murder Counts

December 21, 2006

CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. — A Marine Corps squad leader was charged Thursday with 13 murder counts stemming from the kilings of 24 civilians in the Iraqi town of Haditha last year, his attorney said.

Staff Sgt. Frank D. Wuterich was charged with 12 counts of murdering individuals and one count of murdering six people by ordering Marines under his charge to "shoot first and ask questions later" when they entered a house, according to charging sheets released by defense attorney Neal Puckett.

Just in time for Christmas, so that it can be the sole topic of the news for the next two weeks.
