Facing charges of murder, conspiracy, assault and housebreaking is Pfc. John J. Jodka.
Cpl. Marshall L. Magincalda faces charges of murder, conspiracy, making a false official statement, larceny and housebreaking.
Lance Cpl. Jerry E. Shumate faces murder, conspiracy, larceny and housebreaking charges. Shumate faces an additional assault charge in a separate incident, the alleged assault of another Iraqi man on April 10.
A specification of wrongfully seizing and holding the victim against his will was added to the charges against each Marine.
The murder charges are non-capital, according to the release, which means the accused could not be sentenced to death if convicted.
That's a minor relief, in this awful case. Wouldn't it be terrible to execute some of our own Marines, before any of the captured 9/11 terrorists get the needle?
