Logan Melgar, a special forces soldier assigned to 3rd Special Forces Group.

Sources close to the plea deal say DeDolph will plead guilty Jan. 14 to manslaughter, obstruction of justice and hazing. The prosecution will dismiss the murder and robbery in exchange for the guilty plea. Sources claim DeDolph also agreed to a provision that prevents him from profiting from the case in any way, including writing books or making a living based on his experience with SEAL Team. 6.
