    Military judge dismisses charges in Haditha case 6/17/2008 12:50:00 PM

    CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. - A military judge has dismissed charges against a Marine officer accused of failing to investigate the killings of 24 Iraqis.

    Col. Steven Folsom dismissed charges Tuesday against Lt. Col. Jeffrey Chessani after defense attorneys raised concerns that a four-star general overseeing the prosecution was improperly influenced by an investigator probing the November 2005 shootings by a Marine squad in Haditha.

    The charges were dismissed without prejudice, meaning they can be refiled, but Folsom excluded Marine Forces Central Command from future involvement.

    Chessani was the highest-ranking officer implicated in the case.
