CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A military spokeswoman on Thursday confirmed Pfc. Jesse V. Spielman and the rest of the group accused in an Iraqi rape-slaying recently returned to the United States for pretrial confinement.
Four soldiers from the Army's 101st Airborne Division based in Fort Campbell, Ky., have been recommended for court-martial in the March assault.
The soldiers had been detained overseas, but have been sent to an undisclosed location in the United States, Fort Campbell spokeswoman Cathy Gramling said.
She said she has not been made aware of the level of confinement, which would dictate whether the soldiers were assigned duties.
