    Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales was charged Friday afternoon with 17 counts of premeditated murder in the deaths of Afghan civilians March 11. Bales, 38, a married father of three, is accused of shooting and killing 17 civilians, including nine children. The exact details of the shooting are still sketchy, and Bales’s lawyer has said that the soldier does not remember it. Six other Afghans were wounded, and Bales has been charged with six counts of attempted murder and assault. If Bales is convicted of murder, he could face the death penalty.
