A US Marine will plead guilty next week for his role in the killing of an Iraqi man last April, his father said. Pfc. John J. Jodka, 20, will plead guilty to assault and obstruction of justice, his father, John Jodka, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Friday. The elder Jodka said murder, kidnapping and other charges would be dropped in exchange for the plea, but later said it was premature to discuss details of the arrangement.
