In an interesting development in the murder trial of Special Forces Staff Sgt. Logan Melgar, two of the four accused special operators are negotiating plea deals with the government in exchange for information about the murder. According to the Military Times and the Daily Beast, these men are Navy SEAL Chief Special Warfare Operator Adam Matthews and Marine Raider Staff Sgt. Kevin Maxwell.

Grover Baxley, the civilian attorney of Chief Special Warfare Operator Matthews said that his client “does look forward to getting an opportunity to explain the details of what actually happened in Mali in June 2017, since much of the reporting over the past 21 months has contained wildly inaccurate information. Most importantly, though, SOC Matthews hopes that he can assist the Melgar family in reaching some semblance of closure for this tragic situation.”

The other two accused special operators, SEAL Special Warfare Operator 1st Class Anthony DeDolph and Gunnery Sgt. Mario Madera-Rodriguez, aren’t seeking plea agreements, according to their lawyers.

The two SEALs were assigned to the Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU), another title for SEAL Team 6. The two Marine Raiders were part of the Marine Special Operations Command (MARSOC). The four operators face numerous charges, including felony murder, involuntary manslaughter, conspiracy obstruction of justice, hazing, and burglary.
