Members selection began today in the court-martial of SSgt Frank Wuterich reports the AP (via WaPo here).  A good summary of the SSgt’s personal life since the case began can be found in the AP report:

Wuterich’s charges were . . . reduced to voluntary manslaughter in nine of the 24 deaths and other crimes. Wuterich also has been charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, dereliction of duty and obstruction of justice.

Since his ordeal began, Wuterich has gotten divorced and gained custody of his three school-age daughters, who live with him in nearby Temecula. He works a desk job at Camp Pendleton’s 1st Marine Division headquarters.

He has completed his service but can’t leave the military until his case has been resolved.

More to follow tonight.
