Kennett man accused in wife's death freed on $1 million bond
KENNETT (AP) - A southeast Missouri man accused of fatally shooting his wife was free on $1 million bond Tuesday.
Dunklin County authorities tell the Daily Dunklin Democrat 52-year-old Allan Branum of Kennett no longer was in custody.
Branum was charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the wounding of wife Regena Branum during a dispute at their home in May of last year. She died the next day at a Tennessee hospital.
A message left Tuesday with Branum's attorney, Andrew Bullard, was not immediately returned.
Online court records showed Branum was scheduled for a court hearing Wednesday.
