The wife of the Marine sentenced to life in prison for killing his pregnant comrade has filed for divorced and taken full custody of the couple's four year old daughter.
Although Laurean's now ex-wife, Cpl. Christina Smith, has full custody, Laurean will still have some visitation rights. That's according to the Jacksonville Daily News.
Laurean is currently serving life in prison in Elizabeth City for the murder of Maria Lauterbach. Lauterbach's mother has filed a wrongful death suit against Laurean and Smith. It has been stayed until the outcome of the appeal of Laurean's murder conviction is known.
