An Atmore woman has been charged with murder, following a domestic dispute with her husband at a residence on Ada Bell Road Sat., Nov. 5.

Escambia County Chief Deputy Mike Lambert said a 911 call was received from 56 Ada Bell Road at 1:53 a.m. on Saturday.

“Deputies responded to find a 46-year-old Indian male with an apparent single gunshot wound to his person,” Lambert said in a press release. “The subject was identified as Eric Leon Rolin.”

Lambert said Rolin was pronounced dead at the scene by medics, and that Kimberly Hardy Rolin, 47, also of the same address, told deputies that a domestic dispute had taken place between the two.

“Mrs. Rolin was taken into custody and charged with an open count of murder,” he said. “Deputies have responded to domestic violence calls at the residence in the past.”

Lambert said Kimberly Rolin was transported to the Escambia County Detention Center in Brewton.

As of Monday, Mrs. Rolin was released on a $75,000 bond.

Lambert said the case is ongoing and will be turned over and released to the district attorney’s office. Additionally, the case will be presented to the next grand jury in January or February, he said.
