SAN DIEGO — A Marine sergeant who is being retried in an Iraq war crimes case has been arraigned on charges that include murder and obstruction of justice.

U-T San Diego says Lawrence Hutchins III, of Plymouth, Mass., didn’t enter a plea Thursday at Camp Pendleton in California. His motions asking for a new judge and defense attorney are still being considered.

Hutchins says the defense lawyer assigned to him has been a judge in the past who ruled against him.

A retrial was ordered after the military’s highest court overturned the 29-year-old’s murder conviction last summer. That court ruled his rights were violated by interrogators in 2006.
