"A retired three-star general criticized for misleading investigators probing the controversial death of Cpl. Pat Tillman could be stripped of a star and face a decrease in retirement pension," Pentagon officials tell CNN.

"Retired Lt. Gen. Phillip Kensinger's three-star rank could be cut to two stars, according to Army officials," CNN reported Thursday morning.

Kensinger purportedly misled military investigators when saying he didn't know until after Tillman's memorial service that his killing in Afghanistan was the result of friendly fire.

"We didn't find that credible. We found evidence that he knew in the April time frame," acting Defense Department Inspector General Thomas Gimble told the network.
