New Investigator in Benderman Desertion Case

The fate of Sgt. Kevin Benderman is in the hands of a military investigator--again. Attorneys in his desertion case wrapped up their presentation of witnesses today.

Benderman is accused of refusing to redeploy with his unit to Iraq.

Earlier this month on the eve of a court-martial, a military judge threw out the previous investigator's report for possible bias.

Attorneys presented witnesses to a new investigator today, and they will recommend either for or against court-martial.
