The former Marine charged with the murder of Marine Lance Corporal Maria Lauderbach appeared before an Onslow County judge Monday.

Cesar Laurean entered a plea of not guilty. His defense attorney said he will seek a change of venue in the trial because of all the media attention in Onslow County.

Laurean fled to Mexico shortly after becoming the prime suspect in Lauderbach’s death. As part of the extradition deal, prosecutors agreed not to seek the death penalty.

Until area school districts get some answers from the state on possible budget cuts, school officials are preparing for the worst.

School leaders in Pender County have been working on a budget plan, preparing the county for an 11 percent reduction in state funding. That translates to a four million dollar loss for schools.

That means the loss of numerous teachers and teaching assistants, administrators, and a reduction in central office staff.

Other impacts may include consolidating bus routes, cutting out days in the school year, to college prep course programs.
