Authorities have charged the husband of a Fort Bragg Army nurse with murder after the woman's remains were found in a brush fire three days after she went missing.
Police in Fayetteville have also charged 23-year-old Marine Cpl. John Wimunc with first-degree arson.
Wimunc's wife is Army 2nd Lt. Holley Wimunc, a nurse from Dubuque, Iowa. She had been missing since a fire was discovered in her Fayetteville apartment last Thursday.
Wimunc and Lance Cpl. Kyle Alden were arrested Sunday morning at Camp Lejeune, a Marine Corps base about 130 miles southeast of Fayetteville where they are stationed. Alden is charged with arson and conspiracy to commit murder.
