Husband is charged in death of Army nurse

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.

Both are scheduled to appear in court today.
