The U.S. Army said Wednesday it will seek the death penalty against the soldier accused of killing 16 Afghan villagers in a predawn rampage in March.
Bypassed for a promotion and struggling to pay for his house, Robert Bales was eyeing a way out of his job at a Washington state military base months before he allegedly gunned down 16 civilians in an Afghan war zone, records and interviews showed as a deeper picture emerged Saturday of the Army sergeant's financial troubles and brushes with the law.
"I no longer know if a fair trial for Bob is possible, but it very much is my hope, and I will have faith," she said.
Kari Bales, said in a statement Wednesday that she and their children have been enjoying their weekend visits with Sgt. Bales at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, and she hopes he receives an impartial trial.
