Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales appeared in a military court today for his arraignment, but his lawyers deferred entering a plea in the 2012 shooting spree in Afghanistan for which he's accused.
I wasn't able to make it to the trial at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, but The News Tribune's Adam Ashton provided some great coverage of the today's proceedings.
