Police in Illinois have arrested a third former Marine in connection with the 1972 shooting death of a Camp Lejeune Marine sergeant.
The Daily News of Jacksonville reports that 56-year-old Rodger Gill of Athens, Ill., was taken into custody by Danville, Ill., police last Friday on an indictment handed down by an Onslow County grand jury last week.
Gill is charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the death of Sgt. William Miller.
Vickie Miller Hayden Cooper Babbitt and former Cape Carteret and Belhaven police chief George Hayden were charged last September
with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in
Miller's death. Hayden was released on a $350,000 bond in November,
and Babbitt was released on a $400,000 bond in December. She
returned to her home in Oregon.
