Lynndie England returns to court prior to court-martial

[JURIST] Pfc. Lynndie England returned to court Wednesday for hearings on pre-trial motions for her upcoming court-martial on charges of abusing detainees at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. Three days of preliminary motions were scheduled to be heard, although details were not revealed as to what issues would be covered. England had not appeared in court since giving birth to a son on Oct. 10. England became the focus of the abuse scandal after she was seen in numerous photos that surfaced in the inquiry. JURIST’s Paper Chase has ongoing coverage of proceedings in the case. AP has more.
