Adam Winfield, the ‘whistleblower’ in this case, has agreed to plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter and a minor drug charge. He also agreed to testify against Gibbs, who prosecutors believe is the ‘ringleader’ of the kill team.
Winfield will testify along with Pvt. Jeremy Morlock, who pled guilty to three murders and was sentenced to 24 years in prison last March. He has been cooperating with prosecutors since then. The credibility of Morlock’s testimony has recently been called into question by investigators and defense attorneys, in light of ‘inconsistent testimony’ and the fact that Morlock recently requested court transcripts and investigative documents, saying they help him remember the relevant events. Since last year, Morlock said that it was Gibbs who would randomly choose civilians to kill and plan scenarios to make it look like they were killed in action.
