Metro police detectives in the South Precinct Monday arrested Carlee Michelle Nease after a Davidson County grand jury indicted her on a first-degree murder charge for the shooting death of Dennis Prutianov.
Nease, 20, was arrested at her Blairfield Drive home and was held in the Metro jail in lieu of $500,000 bond, according to police.
Prutianov, 26, was fatally wounded on Sept. 8 of last year when shots were fired into his Moss Road home in Antioch home just after 1:30 a.m.
South Precinct detectives later identified Nease as a suspect, and they anticipate making other arrests.
According to the Metro Nashville Police Department, a drug motive for the murder hasn’t been ruled out. Prutianov had felony cocaine and marijuana convictions in his history.
