DA: Marines Got Brain-Damaged Buddy To Kill

Former Camp Pendleton Marines accused of murder

Trial has begun for two former Marines charged with getting a brain-damaged Iraq War vet to kill a Long Beach man in a dispute over a laptop computer.
Anthony Vigeant and Trevor Landers were in court Wednesday in Long Beach. The ex-Camp Pendleton Marines are charged with the 2007 murder of David Pettigrew.
Prosecutors contend he was shot when the men went to retrieve a laptop because Pettigrew had failed to pay them with an ounce of cocaine.
Landers had a previous trial that ended with a jury deadlock. Vigeant and Landers face life in prison if convicted.
