New Info On Possible Location For Laurean's Trial

Several counties in Eastern Carolina have been requested as possible locations for the trial of Cesar Laurean.

Laurean is awaiting his murder trial for killing fellow Marine Maria Lauterbach.

Earlier this month, after both the district attorney and Laurean's lawyer agreed a change of venue was necessary because of the amount of publicity in the case, a judge ruled for a change of venue and set the trial date for June 28, 2010.

Court documents show defense attorney Dick McNeil submitted Craven, Carteret, Pamlico and Sampson counties as possibilities for the trial. The DA's office tells WITN News they submitted New Hanover and Sampson counties as possible locations.

There's no word on when the judge will make a decision on the location.
