FORT LEWIS, Washington — A US Army spokeswoman said Monday that five soldiers from the same unit have now been implicated in the murders of three Afghan civilians.

The Army said Friday that Spc. Jeremy Morlock had been charged with three counts of premeditated murder and one count of assault. On Monday, Lt. Col. Tamara Parker at Joint Base Lewis-McChord said there is enough evidence to say four other soldiers may be charged.

Parker said one of the four soldiers is being held in confinement in Kuwait and the other three remain with their unit in Afghanistan.
