Could Cesar Laurean Still Face the Death Penalty?
Cesar Laurean’s attorney Dick McNeil spoke with WHQR 91.3 FM about Laurean and the fact that he might possibly be tried twice.
Since North Carolina and the United States Marine Corps are basically two different entities it’s possible that even though NC has said they would not seek the death penalty in the case against Laurean once he is finally extradited, the Marine Corps is silent on it. When he is finally returned to the United States it’s possible that he may face two trials, one in civilian court, and since he is still considered an active member of the United States military he may be tried again in military court.
Perhaps Maria Lauterbach will receive justice in the murder after all…
