Darris Dawson's Killer Claims Self-Defense
Villagers may recall the murder of Staff Sgt. Darris Dawson and his mate in Iraq last year. The Article 32 hearing for Sgt. Joseph Bozicevich, a 3rd Infantry Division soldier accused of shooting and killing his fellow platoon leaders on Sept. 14 came to an end this week with the defense arguing the killings were in self-defense.
If found guilty of premeditated murder, Bozicevich could be sentenced to life in prison or put to death.
