Man charged in murder; 3rd suspect on the loose

Posted: Updated:

Columbus, Ga - A man has been charged in the death of a Fort Benning soldier whose body was found in an eastern Alabama ditch, as authorities are now on the hunt for a third suspect, a man identified as Mike Tucker.

Russell County Sheriff's officials say Travis Leonard has been charged in the death of 34-year-old Donald LaShon Wilson. Officials have already arrested Wilson's 34-year-old wife, Gloria, and say Leonard is the woman's boyfriend.

 Gloria Wilson was having an affair with Leonard while Donald Wilson was reassigned to Hawaii. Wilson told her he wanted a divorce and authorities say she and Taylor plotted to kill him for about $450,000 in benefit money. It's unclear if the two have attorneys.

Wilson was found in a ditch in Seale Monday morning and Phenix City police found his car on fire in a parking lot.
