Army Staff Sgt. Calvin Gibbs formed a "kill team" with a close group of US soldiers to carry out random executions of Afghans.
Gibbs, of Billings, Mont., is a veteran of two previous war-zone tours — one in Afghanistan and a second in Iraq. In the fall, he joined the 2nd Battalion, 1st Infantry Regiment, replacing a squad leader who had been injured by an explosion.
He allegedly boasted about "stuff" he had gotten away with in Iraq and discussed plans for killing Afghans with a small circle of soldiers, according to statements by other soldiers.
All five soldiers are awaiting court-martial proceedings. If convicted, they face the possibility of life imprisonment or death."
