CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. — Witnesses say a 19-year-old Marine lance corporal accused of beating his roommate to death with a crowbar in their Camp Pendleton barracks was drinking heavily and battling depression at the time.

U-T San Diego says the testimony was given during a preliminary hearing Thursday for Darren Evans.

Evans is facing a possible court-martial in connection with the Nov. 5 death of Lance Cpl. Mario Arias Jr.

Lance Cpl. James Hogness testified that on the night of Arias' death, Evans was drinking clear alcohol and was slurring his words.

Witnesses testified Evans' alcohol consumption and depression spiraled out of control after a Labor Day visit to a girlfriend, and he was put on unofficial suicide watch because he threatened to kill himself.

The hearing is scheduled to resume Friday.




I guess this is why Marines can't have nice things????

This whole thing still hits a little close to home. I knew Mario pretty damn well, he lived across the hall from me while we were in MOS school in Pensacola, and I remember Evans a little bit from when I first got there too. You expect to lose friends when their bird goes down or there's an accident on the flight line, or even a fucking car/bike wreck back in the states, but when someone gets beaten to death by their roomate, I don't know how, but it makes it a little tougher to deal with.

Most of the time, your friend dying doesn't leave you hating the friend\acquaintance that lives.

...unless it's the fucking shitbird telling you that the well liked gunner took a round and an IED hit in the same space in time, because he was to afraid of being made fun of, to speak up about the IED he saw clearly before he ran over it, and the ambush began.

It's not that I hate the guy. I mean, yeah, he killed my friend, I would like to see justice done such as life sentence in the brig/death penalty. But that's how I feel all murderers should be dealt with.
