CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. - An 18-year-old Clarksville woman is behind bars Thursday for the murder of her father.

Rebecca Hart was arrested early Thursday and charged with first degree murder.

Her father, 50-year-old military veteran and businessman Gilbert Hart, was found shot to death in his Allendale Drive home early Wednesday morning.

According to the arrest affidavit, Rebecca Hart told police she and two teenage boys, ages 15 and 17, went to her home early Wednesday morning where her father was alone.

She said she spoke with her dad for several minutes but then walked out of the house, leaving the two boys inside with her father.

Once the boys left the house, all three drove away together.

Gilbert Hart's wife called police just after 12 Midnight when she discovered the door to their home open after she was unable to reach her husband by telephone.

Officers found Gilbert Hart shot to death inside.

Rebecca Hart is being held in the Montgomery County jail on a $1 million bond.

The juveniles were arrested and are being held at the juvenile detention center.
