Marine indicted, but won't face death penalty if caught in Mexico

JACKSONVILLE (AP) -- Onslow County's district attorney says he will not seek the death penalty for a Marine indicted on a first-degree murder charge. Authorities believe Cpl. Cesar Laurean has fled to his native Mexico, which refuses to send anyone back to the United States unless they are assured that they won't face the death penalty. District Attorney Dewey Hudson says the choices he faced were life without parole or the defendant living in Mexico without going to trial. Laurean is wanted in the death of Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach, whose remains were found with those of her fetus earlier this month in a fire pit in Laurean's back yard. Lauterbach, who had once accused Laurean of rape, had been missing since mid-December. Laurean faces several additional charges because authorities believe he forced Lauterbach to remove money from her bank account on the same day they think he killed her.

Marine Murderer: No Death Penalty?

Well, the Mexicans have a way of doing things, don't they? So, he gets to be a Genuine Mexican and live there... or NC gets blackmailed into sparing his life. The Solution: I&J Block at Central Prison in Raleigh, where other Lifer's can be persuaded by "management" to shank the B**ast*rd. There is more than one way to evoke the death penalty. Otherwise, NC taxpayers get to support this young buck until he dies of old age. If he wants to pleasure himself -- all he has to do is complain of a rash, and the dermatologist will have the pharmacy issue a large tube of lanolin cream. If the doc refuses, the inmate files a Complaint that his Civil Rights are violated because he is being deprived of MEDICAL CARE. No end in sight. Thanks Mexican government!

The hell with Mexico. I say

The hell with Mexico. I say we go down there and bring him back...and whatever happens to those that get in our way, happens. Who the hell do they think they are anyway? They (Mexican Gov't) does nothing to stop illegals from coming over and then they are going to tell us how we should penalize the losers that commit crimes. Our government should have no contact with Mexico and there should be no agreements between the two countries. Let's execute every illegal from Mexico...we all know that when they get sent back, they are freed and come back to the US anyway

Sure we have a huge problem with illegals in this country but murder is a tad bit harsh don't ya think? I went a little I went a little overboard. But I'm tired of Mexico and illegal immigrants. I wish we had an underground agency that would go into these other countries that refuse to extradite prisoners and kill them. Where is the justice we have now for people like this female marine? There is none. Who is Mexico to tell us we cannot use the death penalty? We just had a Border Patrol officer killed, do you think Mexico cares? Of course not, this guy will be living free for the rest of his life in Mexico. Something needs to change...and soon. If things like this keep going the way they are, people will start taking matters into their own hands. And maybe that is what needs to be done
