US 'murderer' soldier to be tried

US master sergeant John E. Hatley who is charged with murdering Iraqi prisoners in 'execution-style' will be tried in a court-martial.

Hately, 40, is charged with premeditated murders and obstruction of justice, an army statement said, adding that he will be court-martialed on Monday.

He is the most senior of three US non-commissioned officers who are charged with killing four detainees by blindfolding them and shooting in their head near southwest Baghdad in March or April 2007.

Two other soldiers -- Sergeant Michael Leahy, a medic, and Sergeant First Class Joseph P. Mayo -- have been convicted and sentenced to life and 35 years in prison, respectively, with the possibility of parole.

Army Captain John Riesenberg, the prosecutor at Mayo's trial, says the prisoners had been shot in the back of the head "execution style."

Hatley now serves with the 172nd Infantry Brigade in southern Germany, and is to face trial at the Rose Barracks Courthouse, near the town of Vilseck, Germany.
