Solider Faces Murder Charge

Full story and MySpace profile:

Kenneth Eastridge is charged in a Colorado murder, accused with two other members of his former unit of killing another GI in a case that has drawn national media attention as an example of the horrific crimes allegedly committed by some returning Iraqi war veterans.

Eastridge, who was discharged the month before the Colorado murder, is charged -- along with Pfc. Bruce Bastien Jr. and Louis Bressler -- with first-degree murder in the death of their fellow unit member, Spc. Kevin Shields.

On Dec. 1, the morning after the group went out to celebrate Shields' 24th birthday, his body was found on a sidewalk in Colorado Springs; he'd been shot in the face, neck and groin.
