"Stress" made him rape and murder

"Jurors began deliberating on the charges Wednesay, eight days after the trial began in U.S. District Court in western Kentucky.

Green has pleaded not guilty to charges that he raped 14-year-old Abeer Qassim al-Janabi and shot her, her parents and younger sister to death in March 2006.

...But defense attorney Scott Wendelsdorf said jurors needed to take into account Green's stress and the Army's failure to address it. Jurors heard testimony that Green had spoken before the attack about having thoughts of killing Iraqis."
