FORT BRAGG, N.C. — A soldier charged with killing two superior officers in Iraq has a hearing scheduled Monday at Fort Bragg.
Prosecutors said Staff Sgt. Alberto Martinez set off grenades and a mine in a room at one of Saddam Hussein's former palaces in June 2005, killing Capt. Phillip Esposito and 1st Lt. Louis Allen.
Monday's hearing is the equivalent to a civilian court's pre-trial motion hearing. Martinez's court martial is set to start in August
