[JURIST] Charges will not be brought against a US Army captain for allegedly ordering his subordinates to kill Iraqi insurgents in retaliation for an attack on a US base, the Army announced Friday. Captain Michael Cunningham was facing possible charges of solicitation of murder and involuntary manslaughter, but following the acquittal of one of Cunningham's subordinates [coverage of acquittal], a 4th Infantry Division spokesperson said the case had "lost prosecutorial merits." Prosecutors believed Cunningham gave subordinates a list of insurgents who were "not to come back alive" if they were found alive. Cunningham was also one of three officers reprimanded last year [JURIST report] for covering up an incident where an Iraqi man drowned after US soldiers forced him into a river for violating a curfew.
