Democracy Now: Soldier Reaches Plea Deal in Afghan “Kill Team” Case

An U.S. Army Specialist accused of murdering three Afghan men has reached a plea deal that will see him testify against other soldiers. Jeremy Morlock is one of 12 alleged members of a secret “kill team” that murdered unarmed Afghan civilians at random and collected body parts, such as fingers, for trophies. Under his plea deal, Morlock will receive a maximum sentence of 24 years in prison in return for testifying against as many as 10 other soldiers.
