NEW YORK The U.S. Army says eight American soldiers have been charged in connection with the Oct. 3 death of a fellow soldier in southern Afghanistan.

Pvt. Danny Chen, a 19-year-old from New York, was found in a guard tower in Kandahar province with what the Army has described as "an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound."

.....

Chen was assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 21st Infantry Regiment, 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, Fort Wainwright, Alaska.

In a statement, the military said the eight soldiers from Chen's company faced charges ranging from dereliction of duty, assault, negligent homicide and involuntary manslaughter.
