“A soldier charged with premeditated murder in the death of an Iraqi shot the man several times with a rifle before ordering a subordinate to do the same, according to an Army document filed in the case. Sgt. 1st Class Trey A. Corrales of San Antonio and Spc. Christopher P. Shore of Winder, Ga., are charged with one count of murder in the death, which the U.S. military has said happened June 23 near Iraq’s northern city of Kirkuk. A one-paragraph document, called a ‘charge sheet’ in the military, states that Corrales fired multiple rounds before directing Shore ‘to then shoot the detainee,’ according to a report in Sunday’s editions of the San Antonio Express-News. It does not state the number of shots the soldiers allegedly fired. The document was obtained by the newspaper through the Freedom of Information Act. […] Lt. Col. Michael Donnelly, a spokesman for the soldiers’ command in Iraq, would not give details on the alleged shooting. He didn’t know if an autopsy on the prisoner has been performed and would not say if prosecutors have decided to seek the death penalty. […]”
