A Camp Pendleton-based Marine sergeant and his wife were tortured before they were shot execution-style, according to a published report.
Sgt. Jan Pawal and Quiana Pietrzak were bound, gagged and fatally shot in the head, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday. The couple lived off-base in Winchester in a five-bedroom home they recently purchased that had been foreclosed, according to the paper.
Pvt. Kevin Darnell Cox, 20, of Tennessee; Pvt. Embrys John, 18, of Maryland; Lance Cpl. Tyrone Miller, 20, of North Carolina; and Pvt. Kesuan Sykes, 21, of California face murder charges in connection with the case.
The couple married in August.
