"He is the highest ranking soldier charged in what prosecutors say was a rogue 'kill squad' that allegedly targeted Afghan civilians and made the deaths look like casualties of Taliban counterattacks. He has also been charged with removing body parts from his alleged victims, such as teeth and fingers, to keep as souvenirs; planting 'drop weapons' to fake attacks on soldiers; and intimidating several of his own unit members from speaking out against the unit's alleged murder plots and rampant drug use."
