An Ohio Air Force reservist may be in Iraq as the man accused of killing his pregnant Marine daughter is brought to trial.
Beginning next week, Master Sgt. Victor Lauterbach is scheduled to deploy for four months with a squadron that handles aircraft cargo. He's the father of Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach, a Marine from the Dayton area whose charred remains were found near Camp Lejeune, N.C., last year.
A North Carolina prosecutor says the Marine corporal charged with murdering Maria Lauterbach and fleeing to Mexico has exhausted his extradition appeals and is expected back in the U.S. this week.
Lauterbach's mother, Mary Lauterbach, says she intends to attend
the trial of Cpl. Cesar Laurean even if her husband is away.
