Mindy McCready's boyfriend shoots himself dead at the Arkansas home he shared with troubled country music star

David Wilson, the live-in boyfriend of troubled country singer Mindy McCready (seen together center), shot himself in his Heber Springs, Arkansas home on Sunday night and died hours later in a nearby hospital. McCready, 37, described songwriter Wilson, 34, as her 'soul mate' and 'life partner.' Wilson is the father of their nine-month-old son Zayne and played a father-figure role to the singer's elder son Zander (left). McCready, who made a name for herself in the country music world, was found in December 2011 in the Heber Springs home when she fled with her son Zander as part of a dramatic custody battle.
