The Marine Corps says a squad leader accused of hazing a Marine who later killed himself in Afghanistan will go to trial next week.
Sgt. Benjamin Johns will face a general court martial Monday at Kaneohe Bay. He's the second Marine to go to trial in the case.
The first, Lance Cpl. Jacob Jacoby, pleaded guilty to assault for punching and kicking Lance Cpl. Harry Lew shortly before Lew shot himself April 3.
A military judge earlier this week sentenced Jacoby to 30 days in jail and a reduction in rank.
Johns was the leader of the squad that included Lew. He has been charged with humiliating Lew and failing to supervise and ensure the welfare of Marines under his care.
Johns denies the charges.
