Bales' State Of Mind Is Key To His Defense In War Crime Case http://nwpr.org/post/sgt-bales-state-mind-key-his-defense-war-crime-case <p>In eight days of hearings, Army prosecutors outlined in grisly detail the case against Staff Sgt. Robert Bales. He’s the Washington soldier charged with killing and wounding 23 Afghan civilians in a rampage this past March. Bales’ pretrial hearing concluded Tuesday at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. Now the Army will decide whether the evidence supports a full court martial and, if so, whether the death penalty is appropriate in this case.</p><p></p><p> Wed, 14 Nov 2012 14:34:22 +0000 Austin Jenkins 18343 at http://nwpr.org Sgt.
