[JURIST] An Article 32 hearing will resume Monday to determine wither Pfc. Lynndie England should face court-martial in connection with the Abu Ghraib prison abuses. England faces charges which include conspiring to maltreat Iraqi prisoners, assaulting prisoners, committing acts prejudicial to good order and committing an indecent act. Investigating officer Col. Denise Arn has been considering defense requests to call over 160 witnesses, including Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. Arn has not yet said how many witnesses England's defense will be allowed to call, but the hearing is only scheduled for two days this week. AP has more.
