JACKSONVILLE, N.C. — The family of a slain Marine lance corporal has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the 22-year-old former Marine accused of killing her.
Cesar Laurean will go to trial in June in Lauterbach’s death. Her burned body was found buried behind Laurean’s house.
Lauterbach was about eight months pregnant when she died, but DNA tests revealed that Laurean wasn’t the father.
The lawsuit names Laurean and his wife, Christina Laurean, as defendants. It seeks damages in excess of $10,000. Actual damages will be determined at trial.
