Investigators: Missing woman may have been shot


TWENTYNINE PALMS, Calif. (AP) - Investigators believe the missing pregnant wife of a California-based Marine may have been shot while hunting with a married ex-Marine with whom she was having an affair.

The Desert Sun (http://desert.sn/1sGKXes) cites court documents that say on the day she disappeared three weeks ago, 20-year-old Erin Corwin had planned to meet with Christopher Brandon Lee to spend a day together on a hunting trip.

A detective's affidavit shows the investigation is focusing on the 24-year-old Lee, who may have been the father of her child.

Lee says he was not with Corwin on the day she went missing.

Authorities said Monday that Lee was arrested July 4 on suspicion of possession of a destructive device. He was released on bail.

Authorities wouldn't say if the two cases are connected.
