OAK GROVE, Ky. (AP) — Police in Kentucky have arrested a Fort Campbell soldier in the death of his wife last year, which was initially reported to police as a suicide.

The Christian County Sheriff's Department said that Staff Sgt. Michael Korolevich on Wednesday confessed to shooting and killing his wife, 30-year-old Kathleen McGee, on Dec. 3 at their home in Oak Grove, on the outskirts of the Army installation.

The Kentucky New Era reported that Korolevich is being held in Christian County Jail on $1 million bond.

Korolevich told sheriff's deputies she shot herself in the head, but lab results and interviews with family members led investigators to suspect foul play, the sheriff's office said.

McGee had been discharged from the Army the day before she died.
