Soldier faces hearing in slayings in Iraq
Placeholder Image
An investigative hearing at Fort Stewart is expected to reveal some of the details about the case of an Army sergeant charged with murdering a superior and a fellow noncommissioned officer last year in Iraq.

The Article 32 hearing for accused Sgt. Joseph Bozicevich of Minneapolis was to begin this morning. The hearing, similar to a civilian grand jury, will determine whether Bozicevich's case goes to a court-martial.

Bozicevich is charged with killing Staff Sgt. Darris Dawson of Pensacola, Fla., and Sgt. Wesley Durbin of Dallas on Sept. 14 at a small U.S. patrol base south of Baghdad.

The Army says Bozicevich shot both soldiers with a rifle, but has released few other details.
