DA: Might take months for Marine to return from Mexico

JACKSONVILLE (AP) -- A prosecutor says it could take even longer to return a Marine from Mexican custody to face a murder charge in North Carolina than he originally thought. Onslow County District Attorney Dewey Hudson said he learned Tuesday that it could take three to four months to return Cpl. Cesar Laurean to the U.S. Hudson said that time frame assumes Laurean agrees to be brought back to the United States without a legal fight. Hudson earlier said he understood it might take 60 days to bring Laurean back if he agreed. Laurean was captured last week in Mexico. He is charged with the December murder of Marine Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach, who had accused him of rape. (Copyright 2008 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
