“When the officers arrived on the scene, they contacted an adult family member of the victim,” McMann said. “The family member forced the suspect, Erick Dailey, 51, of Atmore, out of the residence.”

McMann said responding officers located and detained McReynolds and contacted the on-call investigator.

Dailey was then transported to the Escambia County Detention Center in Brewton.
