Charge in Chilean singer's death
A judge in Chile has charged a former soldier in connection with the killing, more than 35 years ago, of the popular folk singer Victor Jara, reports the BBC.
The accused man, Jose Adolfo Paredes Marquez, now 54, was an army conscript at the time, the BBC says.
Jara was among thousands of people rounded up in the early days of Gen. Augusto Pinochet's right-wing military coup. He was taken to Santiago's national stadium, tortured and shot.
