The lawyer for a US soldier accused of fatally shooting an Iraqi man said evidence in the case shows his client did nothing wrong. Spc. Christopher "Phillip" Shore and Sgt. 1st Class Trey A. Corrales have been charged with premeditated murder in the June 23 slaying of an unidentified man near Kirkuk in northern Iraq. The Army "charge sheet" document filed in the case says Corrales shot the man several times with a rifle before ordering Shore to do the same. The Iraqi man died a few days later. "Spc. Shore is one of four guys who turned in Corrales, and that's why he's so shocked that he got charged. And based on the evidence I've seen, my client didn't shoot the guy," said Shore's attorney, Michael Waddington.
