Prosecutors: Soldier was 'eager participant' in Afghan killings

A Stryker brigade soldier accused of murdering Afghan civilians made regular use of narcotics during his deployment and was fearful of his squad leader who persuaded others to participate in schemes to kill people in combat-like situations, his attorney argued in a pre-trial hearing Monday. Army prosecutors countered that the soldier was a "right-hand man" and an "eager participant."
