The auction of accused murderer Cesar Laurean's home has been delayed at the request of the mortgage holder.
Some thirty people showed up Monday afternoon at the steps of the Onslow County Courthouse for the auction.
Last year Laurean was charged with killing Maria Lauterbach at the home and burying her body in the backyard.
Countrywide Financial gave no reason for the delay. The opening bid was just under $102,000.
The foreclosure auction has been rescheduled for January 26th.
A law firm is auctioning the Jacksonville house where investigators found the charred remains of a pregnant Marine.
Cpl. Cesar Laurean used to live at the home that's going up for auction Monday afternoon in Onslow County. He has been charged in the killing of Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach of Vandalia, Ohio.
Investigators found Lauterbach's charred remains last year in a shallow grave in Laurean's backyard. Laurean was arrested in Mexico in April and has been fighting extradition back to North Carolina.
The single-story, 1,100-square foot house near Camp Lejeune has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The law firm Brock & Scott PLLC says the opening bid is about $102,000.
