Fort Campbell soldier ordered held without bond

A Fort Campbell soldier accused of killing his wife has been ordered to be held without bond.

Twenty-one-year-old Nicholas Durant is charged with murder in the March 3 shooting death of Spc. Shardae Wright. The 23-year-old was found dead of multiple gunshot wounds in the bathtub of a Clarksville apartment.

The Leaf-Chronicle reports another soldier, Deidra Allen, has a baby with Durant. She testified on Wednesday that Durant told her he shot Wright when she came after him with a gun.

An eyewitness earlier told police that Wright was trying to get away from Durant when he pointed a gun at her. The witness ran to get help and heard several gunshots.

Durant fled and was arrested in North Carolina.

The judge sent the case to the grand jury.
