The Marine Corps is taking the unusual step of allowing a Camp Pendleton squad leader convicted of leading his troops in a 2006 kidnapping and slaying of an Iraqi civilian to get out of prison to be present for the birth of his second child, reports the North County Times.

Lt. Gen. Thomas Waldhauser, commander of the base's I Marine Expeditionary Force and head of Marine Corps Central Command, approved the temporary release of former Sgt. Larry Hutchins this week.

Waldhauser's action allows Hutchins to be with his wife, Reyna, who is scheduled to give birth through induced labor at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton on Monday.
