Torturer cries in court.

Fort Carson - A soldier convicted of negligent homicide in the death of an Iraqi detainee will be reprimanded, forfeit $6,000 in pay and have his activities limited under a sentence announced Monday, but he will not spend time in jail.

Chief Warrant Officer Lewis Welshofer Jr., was convicted Saturday of smothering Maj. Gen. Abed Hamed Mowhoush with a sleeping bag during a Nov. 26, 2003, interrogation.

The attorney said the clapping at the end of the trial was a testament to Welshofer.
