Soldiers charged with rape and murder of Iraqi woman and her family.

More American soldiers are being charged in connection with the alleged rape-slaying of a young Iraqi woman.

The U-S military now says it's charging four active-duty troops with murder and rape. The same charges are already pending against a former soldier, who was arrested last month in North Carolina, and has pleaded not guilty.

There's also a sixth American who was hit with dereliction of duty charges. According to the military, he didn't take part in the attack, but knew what happened and failed to report it.

It was back in March when investigators believe the Americans attacked an Iraqi family in their home. They allegedly raped a young woman, then killed her along with her parents and a sister.
