U.S. army vet convicted of mutilation murder of wife

FORT LEWIS, Wash. – A U.S. army Iraq War veteran was convicted Saturday of murdering and mutilating his teenaged wife, a Fort Lewis spokesman said.

An army jury found Spc. Brandon Bare, 20, of Wilkesboro, N.C., guilty of premeditated murder and two counts of indecent acts for hacking his wife to death with a meat cleaver and desecrating her corpse.

After a five-day court martial, the jury deliberated about four hours Friday night before reaching the verdict shortly after midnight, said Fort Lewis spokesman Joseph Piek.

The same jury of five officers and three non-commissioned officers began considering Bare’s sentence. He faces life in prison.

Nabila Bare, 18, had been stabbed at least 71 times when she was found July 12, 2005, in the couple’s kitchen…


Prosecutors portrayed Bare as a satanic, would-be serial killer who carefully plotted the time and place to slaughter his wife.

His defence lawyer said he was an emotionally and physically damaged Iraq combat veteran, angry about his wife’s infidelity and the pending breakup of their marriage, who killed in a moment of rage.

The machine-gunner with the 1st Brigade, 25th Infantry Division was wounded in a March 24, 2005, grenade attack in Mosul, Iraq.
