The charges stem from a incident in Iraq on April 26. Hashim Ibrahim, a disabled 52-year-old Iraqi civilian was killed in the shooting. According to witnesses, the Marines allegedly dragged Ibrahim from his home in the middle of the night and shot him repeatedly. After shooting him, the Marines allegedly planted a stolen shovel and an AK-47 rifle on his body, ABC News reports.

Another Pentagon officer is looking into an alleged massacre at Haditha last November, according to the BBC News.
