Joseph N. Marshall Jr.

A former Pulaski man who pleaded guilty to abuse of a corpse was sentenced Wednesday morning to time served.

Joseph N. Marshall, 43, was ordered to be released today by Lawrence County Judge J. Craig Cox.

Marshall and Sean McDonough were arrested in September 2010 in the 1993 death of 15-year-old Laura Lynn Thompson. McDonough last week pleaded guilty to third-degree murder and was sentenced this week to serve eight to 16 years in a state correctional facility.

More information will be available in tomorrow’s New Castle News.
