(CAMP PENDLETON, CALIF.) - A Marine reservist from Indiana has been convicted of killing an Iraqi soldier while they stood watch together at a guard post in Fallujah.

22-year-old Lance Corporal Delano Holmes of Indianapolis was found guilty of negligent homicide. He was acquitted of the greater charge of unpremeditated homicide.

A panel of three officers and five enlisted marines returned the verdict today after two days of deliberations.

Holmes claimed he was acting in self-defense when he killed private Munther Muhammed Hassin last December.
