Former Messenger College student to plead guilty in Iraqi's death

A U. S. Marine who once attended Messenger College in Joplin will plead guilty to second degree murder in connection with the death of an Iraqi:

Seven Marines and one Navy corpsman were charged in June with kidnapping, murder and other offenses.Prosecutors allege the squad kidnapped Hashim Ibrahim Awad, took him to a roadside hole and shot him to death. They then placed an AK-47 and shovel by his body to try to make it look like Awad, 52, was an insurgent who had been caught in the act of planting a bomb, prosecutors said. Under their plea deals, the three Marines and the sailor who pleaded guilty each received prison terms of less than two years.

Leave it up to Messenger College to teach good Christian principles. He is a victim of an evil administration and church doctrine.
