Two U.S. Navy SEALs and two Camp Lejeune Marines have been charged in the strangulation death of an Army Green Beret while the service members were stationed in the African country of Mali last year, the Navy said.
Charging documents describe a situation in which some of the nation’s most elite military personnel — including two members of the famed SEAL Team Six — broke into a Green Beret’s bedroom while he was sleeping, bound him with duct tape and put him into a choke hold.
The charges do not allege a specific motive. But the counts filed against the four men range from felony murder to involuntary manslaughter. They also have been charged with hazing.
