The Latest on the arraignment of the Navy officer who supervised a SEAL accused of fatally stabbing an Islamic State prisoner in Iraq in 2017.

The Navy officer who supervised a SEAL accused of fatally stabbing an Islamic State prisoner in Iraq in 2017 has been charged with various offenses. They include allegedly conducting the SEAL’s re-enlistment ceremony next to the prisoner’s corpse and encouraging enlisted personnel to pose for photos with the body.

Lt. Jacob Portier’s court martial began Tuesday at a San Diego Navy base with the arraignment. His defense attorney says Portier will plead not guilty to all charges at a later date. That procedure is allowed in the military court system.
