Closing Arguments in Martinez Case


The prosecuting attorney arguing the case in the trial of Staff Sergeant Alberto Martinez says witness testimony proves the soldier’s guilt.

The Troy-area soldier is accused of killing his two superior officers in Iraq by detonating a mine in their room. If convicted, Martinez could face the death penalty, something a former JAG attorney says doesn’t happen very often.

“It’s very rare in the military setting, but in case like this, it is definitely justifiable, due to the fact, you have an enlisted soldier killing his commanding officer, so if there’s definitely a case for the death penalty, this is definitely it,” said former JAG attorney Greg Rickney.

Martinez’s defense attorney said during the trial, the government only selected evidence that pointed toward Martinez, and that other soldiers had motive.
