Blog watch [Revised]

Phil Cave's Court-Martial Trial Practice blog posted a couple of interesting items today. One is an account of a MEJA prosecution of a civilian husband of an Airman stationed at Kadena Air Force Base on Okinawa for allegedly assaulting and murdering his 8-year-old stepson. The caee will be tried in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland. CMTP's post is available here and the Stars and Stripes report to which is links is available here.

CMTP also has this interesting post about a model state code of military justice for the National Guard. The post provides this link to the model code and this link to a background PowerPoint briefing. (Each of those two links acts like it's password protected, but I hit cancel twice when it asked me to log on and then it just opened.)

And here's a link to Bridget Wilson's piece on the model state code of military justice for the National Guard that Gene Fidell mentions in the comments below.
