    News, Anyone?

    Anyone know what the status is for this case? Are the whereabouts of Christina at this time known? And is there a trial date or any hearing dates scheduled anytime soon?

    Change of venue for Laurean trial approved
    December 08, 2009 2:25 PM

    Cesar Laurean will go to trial June 18 for the December 2007 death of 20-year-old Maria Lauterbach, but it won't be in Onslow County.

    A change of venue was approved by Judge Charles Henry for Laurean's case Tuesday, however, the venue has not yet been decided.

    At least a trial date has finally been set and now the big question is where it will be held.

    It was in my hometown newspaper (Wayne County) that the trial would be held there and the judge is an old friend of mine, we went to school together from 3rd grade until high school.

    DA: Laurean trial moved to Wayne County

    Prosecutors confirmed Monday that former Marine Cesar Laurean’s trial will be held in Wayne County.
    Laurean, a former Marine, is accused of killing pregnant colleague Maria Lauterbach in December 2007 and burying her body in his Onslow County backyard. The case drew national and local media attention in early 2008. Laurean’s attorney, Jacksonville lawyer Dick McNeil requested late last year that the trial’s venue be changed due to the amount of pretrial publicity.
    District Attorney Dewey Hudson admitted Monday that Laurean’s story had probably been heard by most people in Wayne County, but they had not been inundated with news coverage.
    “It would be hard to find a potential juror who has not heard about it,” he said. “But we need to find a jury that will not have its mind made up as soon as it is seated.”
    Hudson said jury selection in Onslow County would take too long.
    “I’m not saying Onslow County jurors are incapable of being impartial, but once you hear something you can’t unhear it,” he said.
    For those reasons, the state did not argue against McNeil’s motion to change venues.
    N.C. Superior Court Judge Charles Henry signed the order Monday officially moving Laurean’s June 28 murder trial.
    Hudson acknowledged some logistical problems — a place to meet with witnesses and telephone and computer access — the venue change will present his office, but said he had received assurances from the Wayne County D.A.’s Office that his staff would be accommodated during the possibly month-long trial.
    Onslow County Sheriff Ed Brown said he has spoken to Wayne County Sheriff Carey Winders to discussed court security and the housing of Laurean during the trial.
    McNeil, who was scheduled to begin an unrelated murder trial this week in Wayne County, injured his knee at his hotel Monday morning. That case — the first-degree murder trial of William Earl Bandy Jr. who is accused of shooting Frederick Anthony Coleman in March 2006 — was postponed.
    McNeil said that although Wayne County was not one of his first choices, it is a suitable because he had sought a venue within a military community. Wayne County is home to Seymour Johnson Air Force Base.
    Hudson said he liked Wayne County because television news coverage for that area comes from Raleigh and not the same stations that cover Onslow County. Less than two hours after Hudson made his announcement at a 2 p.m. press conference in Onslow County, Raleigh’s WRAL-TV carried the story about the venue change on its Web site.
    Hudson said regardless of the venue, Laurean will receive a fair trial.

    though an official ruling will not be made until april 12, a judge said thursday in court he expects the trial of a former camp lejeune marine accused of killing a pregnant colleague to begin as scheduled june 28. http://www.jdnews.com/articles/laure...ial-judge.html
    . . .

    ETA, It is really odd, but even though the quote used capital letters normally, and also I have gone back in to change to capital letters where needed, the quote keeps showing up with all lower case letters.

    I have eagerly been awaiting this trial. There just has to be justice for Maria and baby Gabriel.

    This trial will be televised, won't it? Seems I remember it being said that it would be. My memory is slipping!
    Thoughts and prayers for the people of Paris and all of France!
