New Staff Writer

Atmore police arrested a local woman who stabbed or sliced another person during a domestic incident and took into custody a local man who was on the lam from authorities in another state.
Atmore Police Department Sgt. Darrell McMann said the domestic incident happened around 1:45 p.m. on April 23, when APD officers responded to a domestic violence report at a residence in the 500 block of Bragg Street.
Police discovered that Duntra Mona Howard, 23, “used an edged weapon to cut the victim.”
Howard was placed under arrest and charged with one count of second-degree domestic violence (assault), a Class C felony.
According to Alabama Criminal Code, second-degree domestic violence (assault) occurs when a weapon is used to injure a person who is “a current or former spouse, parent, stepparent, child, stepchild, any person with whom the defendant has a child in common, a present household member, or a person who has or had a dating relationship with the defendant.”
McMann reported that APD officers served an out-of-state felony warrant on an Atmore man, 22-year-old Isaiah Terrell Finney, on April 24.
Finney was wanted by the Shelby County (Ohio) Sheriff’s Office on warrants charging him with making false alarms.
Finney was booked into the Escambia County Detention Center, where he remained Monday, April 24, awaiting extradition to the Shelby County Correctional Facility in Sidney, Ohio.
