Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder and could face the death penalty, the U.S. military says.
He also faces six counts of assault and attempted murder. Bales, 38, stands accused of leaving a remote outpost in Afghanistan's Kandahar province on March 11 and going on a deadly house-to-house rampage, gunning down civilians.
He was returned to the United States last week and is being held at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
