A sworn statement in which Clayton J. Lonetree admitted to giving information to the KGB was presented to the jury Friday at the Marine sergeant's court-martial on espionage charges. David Moyer, a Naval Investigative Service agent, testified that Lonetree voluntarily signed the multipage confession on Dec. 29, 1986, the day he was arrested and more than two weeks after he first approached an intelligence agent in Vienna to tell of his contact with the Soviets.

A lawyer for Marine Sgt. Clayton J. Lonetree asked the military judge at his client's court-martial Monday to suppress two damning statements Lonetree made to authorities who investigated the sex-for-secrets scandal.

A Queens, N.Y. , Marine who guarded the U.S. Embassy in Moscow with accused Soviet spy Clayton J. Lonetree has been detained by the Marine Corps in Quantico, Va. , on suspicion of espionage and related crimes, the corps said Tuesday. The detention lent credence to early suspicions that Lonetree, a Marine sergeant who guarded embassies in Moscow and Vienna before being arrested last December, might have been part of a wider Soviet-run spying operation within the embassy at Moscow.
