Court-martial proceedings for Lynndie England to get under way again

[JURIST] US Army Reserve PFC Lynndie England [Wikipedia profile; JURIST news archive], accused of abusing prisoners at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison, faces new court-martial proceedings, including arraignment and a pre-trial hearing beginning Thursday at Fort Hood. On May 4, a military judge rejected England's guilty plea [JURIST report] to charges of conspiracy, maltreatment of prisoners, and indecent acts, because her story could not be reconciled with that of fellow serviceman and former boyfriend Pvt. Charles Graner, Jr. [JURIST report], who has already been convicted for his role in the scandal. From Waco Texas, KWTX-TV has local coverage.
