Green Apologizes for Slayings

Paducah, KY – A former Fort Campbell soldier convicted of raping and murdering an Iraqi teen and killing her family has apologized for the slayings. Former Pfc. Steven Green told members of the al-Janabi family this morning that he will face "God's justice" after spending the rest of his life in prison. The statement came as part of a sentencing hearing for Green, who will be formally sentenced in September. A civilian jury convicted Green earlier this month of multiple counts, including conspiracy, rape and murder in the March 2006 killings. Members of the al-Janabi family were in court and condemned Green for the slayings.
