She was a mother of six, neighbors said, and a member of Mentor Baptist Church. Neighbors added that several young children lived in the home.

Witnesses said they heard around five gunshots and a car peeling out of the driveway.


John "Will" Allender, 36, the victim’s husband, was arrested and charged with murder. He is being held at the Campbell County Detention Center without bond. Allender walked out of the house and waited on the porch until officers arrived, the neighbor said.

    1. Strange, I also went to school with Will and never thought he was anything but nice. Granted, I haven't seen him in 20 years, but this is definitely a shock from how I remember him.
