Akbar is one of six individuals on death row at the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks in Leavenworth, Kan.
He is accused of attacking his comrades while they slept in tents during the onset of the war in Iraq.

He was a sergeant assigned to the 326th Engineer Battalion of the 101st Airborne Division when his unit deployed to Kuwait. Early on the morning of March 23, 2003, as the U.S. invasion of Iraq was unfolding, Akbar threw incendiary and fragmentation grenades and fired his M-4 rifle in his solo assault on officers sleeping in several tents.
Army Capt. Christopher S. Seifert, a Pennsylvania native and intelligence officer, and Air Force Maj. Gregory L. Stone, a Boise resident and member of the Idaho Air National Guard, died in the attack.
Stone, the appeals court noted, “was killed from eighty-three shrapnel wounds.”
