    of another......

    Hello,

    Could any one please explain the below sentence for me

    "In Chile two army generals and two colonels were jailed for the murder in 1992, when General Augusto Pinochet headed the army, of another colonel who had testified about an illegal arms deal with Croatia."

    Does it mean that "when General Augusto Pinochet headed the army, two army generals and two coloels were jailed for murder?" and why use " of another colonel who had testified about an illegal arms deal with Croatia."

    I don't get the whole construction and grammar of the sentences.
    Please help me understand.

    Thank you

    It means that two Chilean Generals and two Colonels have been jailed for murdering another Colonel in 1992, when Pinochet was head of the army.
