Tony DeDolph, a Navy SEAL, is one of four service members under investigation and charged with the death of Army Staff Sgt. Logan Melgar. The event occurred in 2017 in the country of Mali, leading to DeDolph being charged with murder, involuntary manslaughter, hazing and obstruction of justice. Prosecutors have said that the men strangled Melgar and repeatedly put him in choke holds until he passed out and stopped breathing. Two of the other members involved have already pleaded guilty, with another one’s court-martial set for April 20.
