Crew Members Charged with Murder
(CBS 2/FOX 28) - Four crew members on the South Korean ferry that sank last month- are now charged with murder.
The captain, the chief engineer, and the first and second mates, could face the death penalty if convicted.
Prosecutors say the crew members didn't evacuate the passengers like they should have.
They say they should have used announcements to get the word out, and then used life rafts and life vests.
They've also charged some other members of the crew with abandonment because they were the first people to leave the ferry when things went wrong.
The ferry sank last month, killing nearly 300 people.
20 people still have not been found.
