STAMFORD - A Stamford grandmother is preparing for the funeral of her grandson, who was killed last week in Iraq.

A family spokesman says the soldier, Geebra Noonan, an Army private, and another soldier died after a fellow soldier shot them during an argument on a base.

Noonan joined the U.S. Army less than a year ago and had only been in Iraq for about two months.

His best friend says he and the family are putting faith in the military to bring justice. The investigation may take up to a year.
