Pentagon: Southwest Ohio Marine killed in Iraq

CINCINNATI The Pentagon says a Marine from southwest Ohio has been killed in Iraq.

The Department of Defense says Staff Sgt. Mark Wojciechowski (whoh-juh-CHOW -skee) of Cincinnati died Thursday while supporting combat operations in Iraq s Anbar province.

His stepgrandmother, Cathy Dillinger, says the 25-year-old was on a mission with a bomb squad. She says Wojciechowski had been a Marine for six years and was on his second deployment to Iraq.

Wojciechowski attended Glen Este High School in suburban Cincinnati the same school from which Army Reserve Staff Sgt. Matt Maupin graduated.

Maupin was taken hostage by insurgents in 2004. His remains were recovered near Baghdad last year.
