The Monroe County Advocate -- Soldier will not face death penalty By Tommy Millsaps

During an Article 32 hearing in August, the military equivalent of a grand jury hearing, a military investigator had recommended the death penalty if the four men were found guilty.

JAG Hunter here: Article 32 hearings, under America's Articles of War, are unexampled in the civilian criminal system. AW 32 hearings are not a grand juries, nor do they act like a grand juries. Laconically, there're not juries at all.
