(Shelby County, TN) A man suspected of killing a woman and kidnapping her daughter inside their home is behind bars.

It all started early Sunday morning when 25-year-old Tyrannay Boyd called 911, telling dispatchers her estranged boyfriend, Brandon Spicer, was trying to break into her home on Barkshire.

When police arrived, Boyd was gone and a mother, 41-year-old Rachel Harrington, was found shot to death inside.
