Camp Lejeune Marine Killed In War In Afghanistan

A Camp Lejeune Marine from Michigan who would have turned 22 on St. Patrick's Day has been killed in Afghanistan.

The remains of Cpl. Jacob Turbett were returned Monday to Delaware's Dover Air Force Base.

His wife Crystal says her husband grew up in Wayne County's Canton Township, west of Detroit. She says the military told her he died Saturday.

Other details were not immediately available, and his wife said funeral arrangements were incomplete.

Turbett was part of a unit from Camp Lejeune.
