COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A mid-Missouri soldier has died from wounds he suffered earlier this month while serving in Afghanistan.

The Department of Defense announced Tuesday that 34-year-old Sgt. 1st Class Charles M. Sadell died Sunday at National Naval Medical Center in Maryland.

Sadell was wounded Oct. 5 at Arif Kala, Afghanistan, when insurgents used an improvised explosive device to attack his unit.
