Court-Martial Proceeds for Marine Involved in 2005 Haditha Raids

The court-martial of Staff Sgt. Frank Wuterich, accused of leading a team of Marines in a raid that killed 24 Iraqis in 2005, will proceed without further delay. Wuterich wanted his former lawyer who had left for private practice to return to represent him, but the NMCCA decided that he had “sufficent representation” and “it is time to place this matter before a trial court for a verdict.”

Six other Marines charged in this matter had their charges dismissed, and one was found not guilty.
