Another Ky. Soldier Makes Plea


Another U.S. soldier has reached a plea agreement in the case of raping a 14-year-old Iraqi girl and killing her and her family.

Sergeant Paul Cortez is one of five soldiers from Fort Campbell, Kentucky’s 101st Airborne Division charged in the case.

Cortez’s attorney said Cortez is expected to plead guilty to rape and premeditated murder during a hearing in February.

The attorney said Cortez will no longer face the death penalty.
