    From October 2006:


    Petty Officer 3rd Class Cooper Jackson showed no emotion and seemed unsurprised Friday when a military jury sentenced him to life in prison without parole for the kidnapping and killing of a Marine corporal in January.

    Jackson, 23, pleaded guilty Monday to murder and related charges in a deal that spared him the death penalty. He admitted slitting Cpl. Justin Huff's throat in the mistaken belief that Huff had taken part in the rape of a woman who befriended Jackson over the phone...

    Jackson was led to believe by Ashley Elrod, his phone acquaintance, that Huff participated in a sexual attack on her. She admitted in court the attack never occurred and that Jackson, whom she called more than 1,000 times over a two-month period, was one in a long line of military men she enjoyed calling constantly, using a false identity and personal description... Elrod faces no charges.
