Two Navy Ship Commanders Charged With Negligent Homicide

posted by Bill Strange - 


Two officers who were in command of the USS Fitzgerald and USS John McCain respectively during deadly accidents are being charged with negligent homicide.  The accused will have a hearing to determine if the officers should face a court-martial on the charges.  Each are also facing charges of dereliction of duty and hazarding a vessel.  Several other sailors are also being charged.  The collision last June between the USS Fitzgerald and a container ship left seven crew members dead.  

10 sailors died in the collision between the McCain and a merchant ship last August.
