A former Army private accused in the horrific rape and killing of a young Iraqi woman and the execution-style slaying of her family had been discharged because of an “antisocial personality disorder,” U.S. military officials told The Associated Press.
Previously, in a federal court affidavit, investigators said only that 21-year-old Steven D. Green had been given an honorable discharge for a “personality disorder” this spring before the murder case came to light.
But U.S. military officials who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the case said late Tuesday it was an “antisocial personality disorder.” They did not elaborate.
Investigators say Green and other soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division plotted to rape a young Iraqi woman they first saw at a traffic checkpoint in the village of Mahmoudiya. Green is accused of rounding up three family members in a room of the woman’s house and shooting them before raping and killing her.
