A U.S. military judge has refused to dismiss all charges against an Army private accused of sending hundreds of thousands of classified documents to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.

Lawyers for Bradley Manning argued the charges should be dismissed because he was denied a speedy trial. He has been detained for two years and nine months.

Prosecutors say the delays were reasonable, given the complexity of the case and the volume of classified material involved. The judge agreed Tuesday and denied the defense motion.

Manning faces 22 charges, including aiding the enemy, which carries a maximum life sentence. His trial is scheduled to start in June.
