Soldier Accused Of "Fragging" To Be Arainged At Fort Bragg

The man accused of killing two Army National Guard officers is due in a military court at Fort Bragg tomorrow.

Staff Seargant Alberto Martinez is to be arraigned on charges of killing First Lieutenant Louis Allen of Milford, Pennsylvania and Captain Phillip Esposito of Suffern, New York. Their widows plan to attend the arraignment, even though it will likely take less than an hour for a military judge to complete it.

Martinez is the only soldier known to be charged with "fragging" during the Iraq war. That's a term from the Vietnam War for killing one's superior officer. The term comes from the fragmentation grenades often used for such killings.
