June 05, 2008|Tony Perry

A Marine jury Wednesday acquitted a Marine lieutenant of all charges connected to the 2005 killing of 24 civilians in Haditha, Iraq.

Lt. Andrew A. Grayson, an intelligence officer, had been charged with lying to investigators about the existence of photographs of the dead bodies. He also was charged with attempting to leave the Marine Corps improperly.

A jury of seven officers found Grayson not guilty on all counts.
