Judge to Make Decision on Court Martial This Week

A judge at Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville is expected to announce this week whether a Marine accused of murdering two Iraqis should be court martialed. Prosecutors in the case allege that Second Lieutenant Ilario Pantano murdered two suspected insurgents in 2004. Pantano says he acted in self-defense after the men moved toward him. The judge has said he plans to make a recommendation fairly quickly as Pantano's former unit prepares to return to Iraq.
