Could U.S. soldier accused in Afghan rampage face death penalty? A former JAG officer explains

More details continue to emerge in the case of a U.S. soldier accused of going on a shooting spree in Afghanistan, killing 16 civilians. He has now hired a high-powered lawyer: Seattle attorney John Henry Browne, who once represented serial killer Ted Bundy and the "Barefoot Bandit."

Some reports say the soldier just "snapped," while others say it was stress, alcohol and personal issues at home. But this morning on NBC's "Today" show, Brown shot down those reports.

Soledad talks this morning with former JAG officer Thoams Kenniff, who talks about the details of a military trial, whether the soldier will face the death penalty and if the soldier will be returned to Afghanistan for trial.
