A soldier accused of killing two military men may receive the death penalty if convicted of murder.
Press Release Service – Wired PR News – A soldier who stands accused of murdering two fellow military men may face the death penalty if convicted. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Army Sgt. Joseph Bozicevich reportedly shot his superior and another U.S. soldier in September after they attempted to counsel him regarding his performance.
Maxine Mathis, the stepmother of Staff Sgt. Darris Dawson, one of the men killed, is quoted by the AP as stating of not being in support of the death penalty for Bozicevich, “If they could just send him to prison, that wouldn’t bother me one bit… I just feel in my heart something snapped in that man. I don’t know what those young men go through over there.”
As noted by the AP, Bozicevich would receive life in prison without the possibility of parole if he is convicted, but not given the death penalty.
