The former Midland soldier accused of raping and murdering an Iraqi girl is headed to trial next April.

Steven Green has his court date, and is using insanity as his defense.

That's according to his lawyer.

Green has been charged with attacking and killing the girl and her family back in 2006.

He is facing 16 charges that could get him a death sentence, if he's convicted.

He will be processed in a federal court, because he was discharged from the Army for having a personality disorder before his indictment.
