Description

Ft. Ord, Calif.: Pvt. Billy D. Smith (shown in 11/13/1972 photo) was found innocent 11/14 of planting a booby-trapped hand grenade which killed two officers in the first 'fragging' trial of an American serviceman to be held in the U.S. The seven-man court martial found Smith, 24, innocent of all counts except one charge of assaulting a military policeman who arrested him shortly after an explosion killed two lieutenants.
