SEALE, Alabama -

The wife of a Fort Benning soldier whose body was found in a ditch has been arrested in the man's death.

Russell County Sheriff Heath Taylor Tuesday said 34-year-old Gloria Wilson was being held in the Russell County Jail in connection with the death of 34-year-old Donald LaShon Wilson.

Authorities say 34-year-old Wilson was found with multiple gunshot wounds early Monday morning. Police in Phenix City found the man's car on fire in a parking lot and the man's body was found in a ditch in Seale - about 20 miles west of Fort Benning.

Officials have told investigators that Wilson was slated to be promoted to sergeant first class.

It was unclear Tuesday if the woman had an attorney.
