St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department Chief Investigator Joe Sweatt said Candice Buckhanon, 26, remains in the St. Clair County Jail on charges of manslaughter.

“There was a domestic incident and we received the call regarding a victim of a gunshot wound around 3 a.m.,” he said. “The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.”

Sweatt said Buckhanon is expected to have a bond hearing Monday.
