Sgt. Rober Richards may be the third Marine to face charges of corpse desecration in Afghanistan, see story here, after an IO recommended an SPCM for the Sergeant.  The story also notes that video evidence potentially implicated Richards in other offenses, for example:

One of the additional videos shows Richards throwing a grenade over a 10-foot-high wall without positively identifying the enemy. In another video, Richards can be heard telling his Marines that “for the next five minutes, every military age male south is hostile.”
