Two Navy SEALs and two Marine Raiders are facing murder charges over the death of Staff Sergeant Logan Melgar, US Army Special Forces.
The four operators face numerous charges, to include felony murder, involuntary manslaughter, conspiracy obstruction of justice, hazing and burglary. The Navy has charged the four of breaking into the Green Beret’s room, assaulting him, binding him with duct tape whilst one of the SEALs choked him to death and then lying to Army and Navy criminal investigators about the event.
The two SEALs were assigned to the Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU), also known as SEAL Team Six. The two Raiders were part of the Marine Special Operations Command (MARSOC).
