07 SSGT Logan MelgarA court martial panel found Marine Gunnery Sgt. Mario Madera-Rodriguez guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the 2017 death of Green Beret Staff Sgt. Logan Melgar. Madera-Rodriguez was also found guilty of hazing, making false official statements and conspiracy.

The incident took place in Melgar’s bedroom at off-site housing that he shared with other special operators in Bamako, Mali. The jury came to its verdict after a day’s deliberations in a three-week trial at Norfolk Naval Station, Virginia. Madera-Rodriguez was the last of four co-defendants charged in Melgar’s death by strangulation. Madera-Rodriguez’ sentencing is pending.
