FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) - Prosecutors are asking a judge to let them present evidence of other misconduct in their case against an Army private accused of leaking classified documents to the website WikiLeaks.

They said Wednesday they have evidence showing that Pfc. Bradley Manning knew he shouldn't present classified information to people who weren't authorized to receive it.

During Manning's trial, they want to address "corrective training" he received in 2008 after producing a video for his family in which he discussed his daily life and used words like "classified" and "top secret."

He was arrested two years later on accusations that he sent hundreds of thousands of cables and war logs to WikiLeaks.

A military judge is expected to decide Thursday whether Manning's "corrective training" and other misconduct can be used as evidence.
