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.

Isn't the penalty for first degree murder life in prison or the death penalty here in Tennessee? How can the judge even offer a bond? If she were to make bond, they'll never see her again, or at least till she's captured. The justice system in this state never ceaces to amaze me.

Constitutional issues arise in not granting bond. What if she were innocent? Held without bond? Not right. Just set it high---like 500k.

Maybe the Court would rather collect on the bond than trial and imprisonment cost.

If she dies in jail, that will be a win-win.

People who committed crimes and proven that he/she is guilty of the crime should be punished and put to jail. In third world countries, rich people who committed crimes can easily escape from the crime that they do because they are using their money to be acquitted in the case.
