Marines charged in murder make court appearance

Two Camp Lejeune Marines were in court Tuesday facing charges stemming from the death of Lieutenant Holly Wimunc. Marine Corporal John Wimunc appeared before a judge in Fayetteville. He faces charges of first-degree murder, and arson. Another Marine, Lance Corporal Kyle Alden, was also charged with arson and as an accomplice in the murder. Army Second Lieutenant Holly Wimunc was a nurse stationed at Fort Bragg's Womack Army Medical Center. She had been missing since last week. Co-workers found a fire in her apartment Thursday. Her charred body was discovered Sunday, about a mile and a half off of Old Folkstone Road in Sneads Ferry.
