Army document says soldiers shot Iraqi prisoner multiple times

SAN ANTONIO - An Army document states that a San Antonio soldier charged with premeditated murder in the death of an Iraqi shot the man several times -- then ordered a subordinate to do the same.

The one-paragraph document, which the military calls a "charge sheet," was obtained by the San Antonio Express-News through the Freedom of Information Act.

In it, the document states that Sergeant First Class Trey A. Corrales shot the Iraqi detainee "multiple times" with a rifle.

It goes on to say that Corrales then ordered Specialist Christopher Shore, a soldier from Georgia, to "shoot the detainee." The document does not say how many times the soldiers

allegedly fired.

An attorney for Corrales, Frank Spinner, says the charge sheet doesn't scare him and that he wants to see the facts and evidence.

A military spokesman wouldn't elaborate on the charge sheet.

If found guilty, Corrales and Shore could face the death penalty.
