It was one of the worst Marine-on-Marine crimes in the history of the Corps.
Iraq War veteran Sgt. Jan Pietrzak, 24, and his wife Quiana were relaxing in their Winchester, Calif. home, not far from Camp Pendleton, when four of the NCO's enlisted Marines burst into the home, one of them wielding a shotgun.
The sergeant and his wife were bound and tortured before each was murdered "execution-style" with a bullet to the back of the head.
Investigators say 26 year-old Mrs. Pietrzak was raped multiple times before she died.
Cops say there is evidence the killers tried to torch the house to destroy evidence, but the blaze burned itself out.
ALLEGED KILLERS CAUGHT AND ARE BEING HELD WITHOUT BAIL
Four Marines who worked for Pietrzak, a helicopter airframe mechanic at Miramar Marine Corps Air Station in San Diego, are now in custody, charged with murder and rape in the October 15 assault.
The punks have been identified as Lance Corporals Tyrone Miller, 20 of No. Carolina; Emerys John, 18 of Maryland; Kesuan Sykes, 21 of California and Pvt. Kevin Cox, 20, of Tennessee.
They are being held without bail at the Riverside County Jail and could face the death penalty.
POLISH IMMIGRANT JOINED MARINES IN BURST OF PATRIOTISM AFTER "911"
Born in Poland, Pietrzak came to this country at age 10 and was raised by his family in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Caught up in the wave of patriotism that took place after the 911 attacks against the United States, Pietrzak enlisted in the Marines and had recently been promoted to buck sergeant.
The noncom's mother, Henryka Pietrzak-Varga, told the New York DAILY NEWS that she had prepared herself for the possibility her son could be killed in Iraq.
"But I never thought he would die like this," she sobbed.
"Those who did it are monsters. They are monsters!"
Sources tell MilitaryCorruption.com the motive for the break-in was apparently robbery. It soon escalated to torture, rape and murder.
We can only wonder what kind of Marine recruiters enlisted scum like this into the Corps.
