How to support victims of domestic abuse
Lancaster County deputies seek a man wanted on a murder charge after his girlfriend was found dead, officials said.
Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office deputies obtained a murder warrant against Derrick Allen McIlwain, 41, of Heath Springs, said Lancaster County Sheriff Barry Faile.
McIlwain remains at large and deputies are asking for the public’s help in finding him.
McIlwain also is being sought on an arrest warrant for a previous domestic violence against Alger.
“It is urgent that McIlwain be located and taken into custody on these charges,” Faile said.
Deputies have declined to say how Alger was killed. She lived in the same Dickens Road home with McIlwain, according to deputies.
