Man accused in Afghan killing could be released from jail

A Stryker soldier who allegedly helped murder an Afghan civilian last year asked an Army judge to release him from confinement at Joint Base Lewis-McChord while he awaits his June court-martial. Spc. Michael Wagnon believes he's been kept in confinement because the Army views him as a "media risk."
