— A Moore County judge ordered Randy Martin Baughn, 38, held without bond Monday. He is charged with shooting and killing his wife, an assistant principal at Pinecrest High School.

Abby Baughn, 36, was an assistant principal for 11th and 12th grades at Pinecrest High for the past two years, school district spokesman Tim Lussier said. She started work in the district in 1999 as an Exceptional Children teacher at Union Pines High School and later became the director of the program, he said.

Deputies responding to a report of a shooting May 24 at 333 Baughn Trail found Abby Baughn dead from a gunshot wound to the head, authorities said.
