Ex-Guantanamo commander charged with hindering probe
A former commander of the U.S. Navy base at Guantanamo Bay has been charged with obstructing justice and other offenses in the 2015 death of a civilian who worked there.
Navy Capt. John Nettleton also has been charged with concealing material facts related to Christopher Tur’s death. Tur’s body was found in the water off the base in southeastern Cuba.
A federal indictment says Nettleton hid the fact that he was having an affair with Tur’s wife and that the men fought the night of Tur’s disappearance. Nettleton was arrested Wednesday in Jacksonville, Florida.
