CALIFORNIA, KY (FOX19) -

A Campbell County man is accused of gunning down his wife.

John "Will" Allender, 38, is held without bond on a murder charge at the Campbell County Detention Center.

Authorities took him into custody Tuesday, shortly after his wife was found dead in the 11000 block of Mary Ingels Highway in Mentor.

Cheryl Allender, 37, was the mother of six children, according to family members.

The couple was splitting up, according to a neighbor.

Allender walked out of the house and waited on the porch until officers arrived, the neighbor said.

"I heard they were getting a divorce, and when I drove by they were out in front of the yard. I should have said something, but I didn't. I drove on and went to the doctor... my wife called and said there was a shooting," said the neighbor, who asked to not be identified.

Allender is set to go to court Thursday morning.
