No bond for Lejeune Marine charged in death of infant

Posted: Updated:
JACKSONVILLE, N.C. - A Camp Lejeune Marine made his first court appearance Wednesday for the death of a baby boy.
 
23-year-old Lance Corporal Matthew Krause is charged with murder, child abuse, and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile.

The Onslow County Sheriff’s Office says Krause killed his girlfriend’s 11-month-old son at an apartment in Maysville.

The sheriff says the autopsy revealed the child died from Shaken Baby Syndrome.

Krause is being held in the Onslow County Detention Center under no bond.
 
“I think it’s ridiculous,” said Jushunda Vanoah Young about the incident. “You shouldn’t do a baby like that.”
 
The incident happened July 28, but deputies only arrested Krause Tuesday. They waited two months to make the arrest so the Medical Examiner’s Office could finish and release the results of the child’s autopsy.
