VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Police say a Virginia Beach sailor whose wife was killed last year while he was deployed with the Navy has been found dead in his apartment.

The body of Scott Dunn was found Monday morning.

Media outlets report police are awaiting the results of an autopsy before making a ruling on Dunn’s death.

His wife, Shana Hight, was found dead in the same apartment last September. A neighbor, Robert Lee Sadler, is awaiting trial on capital murder charges in her death that could make him eligible for the death penalty if convicted.
