CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. -- Seven Marines and a Navy medical corpsman were charged yesterday with premeditated murder, kidnapping, conspiracy and other offenses in connection with the April 26 death of an Iraqi civilian in Hamandiya and an alleged cover-up.

An AK-47 and a shovel were left near the body to make it appear that Awad was an insurgent digging a hole to place a roadside bomb, according to military investigators.
