Witnesses In Army Trial Killed In Crash

Honolulu Post Chronicle

Several U.S. Army soldiers killed in a helicopter crash in Iraq last week were to be witnesses in the homicide trial of their former superior.

Honolulu’s KITV reported Sunday that some of the soldiers who died in the crash had been scheduled to testify in the trial of Sgt. 1st Class Trey Corrales, who is accused of orchestrating the death of an Iraqi detainee this year.

Corrales, who was in the same Hawaii-based platoon as the soldiers killed in Wednesday’s crash, allegedly shot the detainee repeatedly June 23. He is accused of then ordering his subordinate and fellow defendant, Spc. Christopher Shore, to continue shooting the man. The detainee died from those wounds.

Retired military lawyer Earle Partington said the loss of the witnesses could prove detrimental to the prosecution’s case against the pair.

“If these witnesses are no longer alive, there is no way for the accused or their counsel to question them. Unfortunately, it could mean that there is no trial,” Partington told the TV station. “Obviously, it depends on what witnesses the government still has

    You pathetic hacks will stop at nothing to demoralize the troops. You and your ilk should be shipped to GITMO

    What did I do to demoralize the troops. Didn’t you see that other story where the troops gave a standing ovation to the governor of Puerto rico for calling for and end to the war. I didn’t have anything to do with that. And on this story I didn’t even comment, just printed what the story says. I report, you decide, Bush demoralizes.
