Alaska soldier's drug use an issue in war crimes hearing

Spc. Jeremy Morlock on Monday will become the first soldier from Joint Base Lewis-McChord to face a hearing on allegations he and other soldiers killed civilians in Afghanistan in what could be a high-profile prosecution of U.S. war crimes in the Afghan war. Murlock's attorney will argue that his statements should be discounted, because he was taking at least 10 prescription drugs.
