Alabama Man Arrested in 1995 Slaying After Calling Police
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – Authorities in Alabama say a man is being charged with murder after calling police and confessing to an unsolved killing that happened in 1995. Police say 53-year-old Johnny Dwight Whited of Trinity called officers Wednesday offering information about the shooting death of Christopher Alvin Dailey in 1995.
Court documents show the man provided information that matched evidence in the case and reenacted the slaying for detectives. Whited already was awaiting trial on a methamphetamine charge.
Griff Belser, Whited’s lawyer in the drug case said he was unaware of the arrest in the slaying until it was announced by police.
