Apparent War Criminal Charged With Murder

A Fort Carson soldier told Army investigators he and another soldier routinely shot at Iraqi civilians while on patrol in Baghdad, according to court records filed in a Colorado Springs homicide case.

The Army's Criminal Investigation Command is investigating the alleged war crimes.

Pfc. Bruce Bastien Jr., who faces a first-degree murder charge in the December death of Spc. Kevin Shields, told a CIC agent "about potential crimes which occurred in Iraq during these soldiers' deployment there," the records reveal.
