Iraq rape case: Ex-US soldier pleads not guilty
Louisville, Jul 7: A former US soldier pleaded not guilty to killing a family of four in Iraq and raping one of them.
Former Pfc. Steven Green, 21, appeared briefly in federal court yesterday where federal prosecutors said a grand jury would be asked to bring an indictment against him.
Green, discharged from the Army with a personality disorder, was charged on June 30 with raping an Iraqi woman and killing her, her parents and her younger sister in their home in Mahmudiya, Iraq, in March, prosecutors said. Other soldiers suspected in the case remain on duty in Iraq.
