The captain of the sunken South Korean ferry and three other crew members face a possible death sentence after being indicted for homicide following the ship’s sinking.
Eleven other crew members were charged with negligence and abandoning passengers while in need. But Capt. Lee Joon-seok faces a harsher indictment after allegedly telling passengers to stay in their rooms while abandoning the ship himself.
Almost a month after the Sewol’s sinking, 23 bodies remain missing while 281 have been retrieved.
