Former Pfc. Steven Dale Green told members of the al-Janabi family on Thursday that he will face "God's justice" after spending the rest of his life in prison. The statement came as part of a sentencing hearing for Green, who will be formally sentenced in September.
A civilian jury convicted Green, of Midland, Texas, on May 7 of multiple counts, including conspiracy, rape and murder in the March 2006 killings of 14-year-old Abeer al-Janabi and her father, mother and 6-year-old sister near Mahmoudiya, Iraq, about 20 miles south of Baghdad.
Members of the al-Janabi family were in court and condemned Green for the killings.
