Court-martial for soldier charged with killing Afghans

A U.S. soldier accused of killing civilians in Afghanistan will face a court-martial on murder and other charges, as recommended by an Army officer.

The document approving the recommendation for the court-martial of Spc. Jeremy Morlock was signed by the officer in charge Friday. It was obtained by CNN, along with other documents, that summarize last week's hearing at an Army-Air Force installation outside Tacoma, Washington, where prosecutors presented evidence against against Morlock.

Base officials would not confirm the authenticity of the document, which has not been publicly released.

Morlock is one of five member's of the Army's 5th Stryker Brigade who is accused of premeditated murder in a series of incidents between January and May.
