DALLAS (AP) – The military prosecutor who won a life sentence for a soldier who massacred 16 Afghan civilians says he tried his best to serve the soldier’s victims, many of whom wanted a death sentence.

Lieutenant Colonel Jay Morse spoke Thursday to The Associated Press at Southern Methodist University in Texas.

Morse prosecuted Staff Sergeant Robert Bales, who shot 22 people in Afghanistan’s Kandahar province in March 2012. Shortly after getting the case, Morse says he wrote down three goals: to convict Bales, to satisfy his victims or help them understand the legal process, and to avoid any major mistakes.

Bales agreed to a deal to avoid the death penalty.

Morse says several issues led to the deal, including uncertainty over access to the crime scene and witnesses as American troops draw down from Afghanistan.
