Ex-soldier in Iraq slaying sent to Ind. prison, by BRETT BARROUQUERE Associated Press Writer, 2 October 2009.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – A former U.S. soldier sentenced to five consecutive life sentences for the rape and murder of an Iraqi teenager and the shotgun slaying of three of her family members has been assigned to a federal prison in Indiana.

The federal Bureau of Prisons on Friday listed former 101st Airborne Division Pfc. Steven Dale Green as housed at the Terre Haute, Ind., United States Penitentiary. The high-security prison, about 70 miles west of Indianapolis, houses about 1,600 inmates, along with the federal death row unit.

A civilian jury in Kentucky convicted the 24-year-old Green in May of raping Abeer Qassim al-Janabi, conspiracy and multiple counts of murder. A jury couldn’t reach a unanimous decision about whether Green should get a death sentence, automatically making Green’s sentence life in prison.

Barring a successful appeal or presidential pardon, Green will not be eligible for release from prison.
