The USS Fitzgerald sits in dry dock in Yokosuka, Japan, on July 11, 2017, to continue repairs and assess damage sustained from a June 17 collision with a cargo ship ran in the waters off of Japan. The Navy says it is filing negligent homicide charges against the commanders of two ships involved in fatal collisions last year. (Courtesy of the U.S. Navy / AP)

Five officers involved in two Navy ship collisions last year that killed a total of 17 sailors are being charged with negligent homicide, the Navy said Tuesday.

A Navy spokesman, Capt. Greg Hicks, said the charges, which also include dereliction of duty and endangering a ship, will be presented to what the military calls an Article 32 hearing to determine whether the accused are taken to trial in a court-martial.
