A military judge at Ft. Bragg, N.C., rejected an Army sergeant's guilty plea to killing one soldier and wounding 18 others in a sniper attack, officials said. The judge, Col. Peter E. Brownback III, rejected it because prosecutors said they would attempt to show Sgt. William J. Kreutzer was guilty of the more serious crime of premeditated murder. The plea would have carried a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. Under military law, Kreutzer cannot plead guilty to premeditated murder. He could face the death penalty if convicted.
