Arrest Made in Woman's Shooting Death at Deer Camp

WILTON, Ark. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a Wilton man on suspicion of killing his estranged wife at a deer camp in rural Little River County. Authorities arrested 42-year-old John Thomas Wright on suspicion of murder in the death of 34-year-old Leeann Wright.

 John Wright also suffered a gunshot wound to the head, and authorities say he shot himself. John Wright was sent to a Little Rock hospital to recover from the wound. Prosecutor Bryan Chesshir says he obtained a murder warrant Thursday in anticipation of Wright's discharge from the hospital.

Chesshir says a motive in the killing remains unclear. --- Information from: Texarkana Gazette, http://www.texarkanagazette.com
