A US Army soldier convicted of fatally shooting an Iraqi cow herder in the back of the head was released from a US military prison almost a year early, his attorney said. Army Spec. Edward Richmond Jr., 22, was convicted of voluntary manslaughter and sentenced in August 2004 to three years in prison for the April 28, 2004, shooting death of Muhamad Husain Kadir in the village of Taal Al Jal, which is about 40 miles (65 kilometers) southwest of Kirkuk. Richmond was released Friday on parole from an Oklahoma military prison, his attorney told The Dayton Daily News for a story published Sunday.
