SAN DIEGO_Three Marines from Camp Pendleton will face courts-martial on
murder charges in the death of an Iraqi man in the town of Hamdania, the
Marine Corps said Monday.

Gen. James Mattis, the commanding general in the case, said he would not
seek the death penalty.

The three were among seven Marines and one Navy corpsman charged with
kidnapping and murdering 52-year-old Hashim Ibrahim Awad last April. The
other five face preliminary hearings in coming weeks.
