The Marine Corps has discharged Frank Wuterich, formerly of Meriden, Conn., the lone Marine convicted in the 2005 killings of unarmed Iraqi civilians in the town of Haditha.
The former sergeant ended his service Friday, Marine Corps spokesman Lt. Col. Joseph Kloppel said.
Wuterich had his rank reduced to private as part of a deal that abruptly ended his manslaughter court martial last month at Camp Pendleton and spared him imprisonment.
The 31-year-old father of two pleaded guilty to negligent dereliction of duty as the leader of the squad that killed 24 Iraqis after a roadside bomb exploded in the town, killing a fellow Marine and wounding two other Marines.
