A Marine corporal has been convicted of kidnapping and conspiracy to commit murder in connection with the death of an Iraqi man in Hamdaniya
Cpl. Trent D. Thomas had pleaded guilty to murder in the killing, then withdrew his plea earlier this year.
Thomas was found not guilty on charges of murder, larceny, housebreaking and making a false official statement, according to a statement released by the U.S. Marine Corps. Sentencing proceedings are set to begin Thursday, the Marines said.
Thomas, 25, was among a group of four Marines and a Navy medic who pleaded guilty, but initially was the only one to admit to murder in the April 2006 killing of Hashim Ibrahim Awad, 52.
