Private Changes Story at Article 32

The Army Times reports that Pvt. Jeremy Morlock testified at an Article 32 hearing for Staff Sgt. David Bram, who is one of six soldiers charged in connection with what prosecutors say was a plot to murder civilians for sport.  Morlock apparently changed his tune.  At the 32 he testified that he assumed Bram approved of the killing but that the two did not discuss it in advance.  He previously said he and Bram had discussed killing them before the incident.  Bram is charged with solicitation to commit premeditated murder, failing to report crimes, participating in discussions about murdering noncombatants, planting evidence near a corpse and assaulting a fellow soldier.
