Marine Cesar Armando Laurean, the suspect accused of killing pregnant fellow Marine Maria Lauterbach, has been apprehended after more than three months on the run. Lauterbach went missing just before Christmas. In early January, her body and that of her fetus were found burnt in a makeshift grave in the backyard of Laurean's home near Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, where both Lauterbach and Laurean served. Laurean was nabbed earlier this week in Tacambaro, Mexico, with ten pesos in his pocket, reports MSNBC. Lauterbach brought rape charges against Laurean last spring, which he denied, and subsequently he was never prosecuted for them. Laurean is currently awaiting extradition to the U.S. [MSNBC]
