LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A former Fort Campbell soldier convicted of raping and
killing a teenage Iraqi girl and using a shotgun to kill her family has died in
prison in Arizona.
Federal Bureau of Prisons spokesman John Stahley says the death of 28-year-old
Steven Dale Green of Midland, Texas, on Saturday morning is being investigated
as a suicide.
Green was a private in the 101st Airborne Division based at Fort Campbell on
the Kentucky-Tennessee state line when he deployed to Iraq.
Green and three other soldiers went to the home in Mahmoudiya,
Iraq, in March 2006. Green killed three members of the al-Janabi family before
becoming the third soldier to rape 14-year-old Abeer Qassim al-Janabi. Green then shot her.
The other soldiers are serving sentences in the military prison at Fort
