NEW: Last Haditha Defendant Seeks To Dismiss Charges

Gen. James Mattis is scheduled to address a military judge Monday on a defense motion to dismiss charges including voluntary manslaughter against Staff Sgt. Frank Wuterich.

The defense argues Mattis was improperly influenced by a military lawyer who investigated the killings of 24 Iraqis in Haditha in November 2005 and later became a top aide to the general.

The 30-year-old Wuterich is the only remaining and perhaps the highest-profile of eight Marines who were charged in connection with the Haditha case.
