Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher, 39, has been in the brig since his September arrest. He is scheduled to stand trial Feb. 19. He has denied all the charges.

His lawyers had argued in making the request that Gallagher looks forward to his trial to clear his name and is not a flight risk. They could not be immediately reached for comment.

Gallagher is accused of fatally stabbing the teenage Islamic State prisoner in his care in Iraq in 2017. He also has been charged with opening fire on crowds of civilians and shooting two civilians, a girl and an elderly man, during separate incidents on the same deployment.
