FRANKFORD — A northeast Missouri man suspected of trying to kill his wife and daughter is in custody, ending a lengthy search.
The Hannibal Courier-Post reports that 43-year-old Johnnie Bailey of rural Frankford turned himself into Pike County authorities on Monday. He is charged with unlawful use of a weapon, and authorities say more charges are possible.
Bailey is jailed on $25,000 bond and it isn't clear if he has an attorney.
Authorities had been searching for Bailey since Aug. 16, when someone called 911 to report an argument between Bailey and his wife. The 911 dispatcher said he heard a gunshot during the call.
No one was hurt, but Bailey got away, leading to a search that included the Missouri State Highway Patrol SWAT team.
