I don't really think that teenagers are suited to the horrors of war.

Soldier From N.C. Accused Of Stabbing Wife 71 Times

POSTED: 12:42 pm EST January 11, 2006

FORT LEWIS, Wash. -- Army prosecutors said a 19-year-old soldier from North Carolina who returned from combat in Iraq stabbed his 18-year-old wife at least 71 times.

Prosecutors said Brandon Bare should face a court martial for the slaying last July of Nabila Bare in housing at Fort Lewis, Wa.

Bare's lawyer said the killing was not planned.

Bare is a native of Wilkesboro, N.C., who returned from Iraq in April with wounds. He suffered cuts and ear injuries in a grenade attack on his Stryker vehicle.

An Army colonel will decide whether there will be court martial. At a hearing Tuesday at Fort Lewis, Bare's squad leader, Sgt. Everett Clark, described combat at Fallujah and Mosul, including the attack in which he was wounded.
