Allen Warner was also held without bail after a not guilty plea to a murder charge was entered on his behalf at his arraignment Wednesday.

Prosecutors say 48-year-old Shana Warner, who had filed for divorce three times, was found next to her vehicle by the side of a Marshfield road Monday. She had previously called police to say her husband was following her.

After the shooting, Allen Warner evaded a police manhunt until he was arrested in Whitman on Tuesday afternoon.

The 47-year-old Warner's attorney questioned the evidence in the case, including witness identification and noted that no weapons had been recovered.
