Jurors to Decide Deadly Russian Roulette Case

Jurors have heard final arguments in the trial of an Army soldier accused of providing the bullet and the gun to his best friend and fellow soldier in a deadly game of Russian roulette.

Sgt. Michael McCloskey (U.S. Army)

Twenty-seven-year-old Jacob Brouch is charged with manslaughter and a weapons charge in the death of 26-year-old Michael McCloskey, of Beverly, N.J., who died in March 2011 of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his abdomen.

Prosecutors say it was the conduct of the two men as they went on a 36-hour drinking binge at Brouch’s home near Anchorage that was reckless and led to McCloskey’s death. They also point to Brouch’s handing his friend the bullet and the powerful revolver and twice demonstrating how to play Russian roulette.

The case now goes to the jury.
