US Soldier Guilty in Killing of 4 Iraqis in 2007

VILSECK, Germany (AP) - A U.S. Army court-martial has found a
soldier guilty of murder in the execution-style slayings of four
bound and blindfolded Iraqi detainees in the spring of 2007.
Sgt. 1st Class Joseph Mayo, 27, pleaded guilty Monday to charges
of premeditated murder and conspiracy to commit premeditated murder
at his court-martial at the U.S. Army's Rose Barracks. A charge of
obstruction of justice was dropped by prosecutors.
Mayo, of Fort Bragg, North Carolina, faces the possibility of
life in prison and will be sentenced later Monday.
The incident occurred while Mayo was deployed to Iraq.
