A panel of the U.S. Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals has upheld the conviction and sentence in the case of a Marine master sergeant who murdered a prostitute in Hawaii. Details can be found here. The decision in United States v. Crosby can be found here. The military prosecuted the case; the Honolulu prosecutor passed on it. Query (as we have asked in the past): why should this case have been tried in a military court?
