UPDATE: Pretrial Confinement to End for Kill Team Soldier?

After 10 months in pretrial confinement, accused 5th Stryker Brigade soldier, SPC Michael Wagnon, is seeking release from confinement from the military judge presiding over his case.  Wagnon is alleged to be one of the participants in the "Kill Team" that pursued civilian Afghanis.  Wagnon still faces a murder charge, although the obstruction of justice charge has been dropped.  His court-martial is scheduled for June.

UPDATE:  LTC Kwasi Hawks ordered Wagnon released from pretrial confinement to be restricted to the limits of his on-base home (with electronic monitoring).
