Soldier Sentenced in Death of Detainees

Another Fort Campbell soldier was sentenced in connection with the deaths of Iraqi detainees.

William B. Hunsaker was sentenced to 18 years in prison after he pled guilty to murdering three detainees during a raid on a suspected Al-Qaida stronghold in 2006 in Iraq. He pled guilty to murder, attempted murder and obstruction of justice.

Under a plea agreement Hunsaker's rank will be reduced to private, his pay will be forfeited and he will be dishonorably discharged.

Hunsaker was one of four soldiers charged in the killings. Juston R. Graber pled guilty and was sentenced to nine months in military jail. The other two are awaiting courts-martial.
