A military judge will release a verdict in the trial of Army Pfc. Bradley Manning Monday afternoon. Manning, 25, is accused of the biggest leak of classified information in U.S. history, leaking 700,000 U.S. government documents to the website WikiLeaks.

The documents, including diplomatic cables and war logs from Iraq and Afghanistan appeared on the WikiLeaks website in the spring of 2010. Manning, an intelligence analyst, was arrested in May 2010 and later pleaded guilty to 10 of the 22 charges against him. In June of 2013, his trial on the remaining charges began at Fort Meade in Maryland.

The verdict is expected to be released at 1 p.m. EDT Monday. Read through some of the background of the Manning trial and stay with PBS NewsHour's live blog for updates and reaction on the verdict.
