PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) - Jury selection has begun in Paducah for the trial of a former Fort Campbell soldier charged with crimes that include killing a family in Iraq and raping a teenage girl who was among those killed.
Former Pfc. Steven Dale Green of Midland, Texas, was a member of the 101st Airborne Division when the attack occurred in March 2006. Three other soldiers pleaded guilty at courts-martial to having roles in the attack and a fourth was convicted.
Green has pleaded not guilty. The lengthy jury selection process expected to run through mid-April began Monday in the case that could bring the death penalty.
