INTERVIEW: Ronda Wilbur, Neighbor of Alabama Hostage-Taker, and Local Pastor Michael Senn Talk About Kidnapping of 5-Year-Old Boy

Earlier on America's Newsroom, Martha MacCallum talked to two locals in Midland City, Alabama, where a man has been holding a five-year-old boy hostage in an underground bunker for nearly two full days.

Ronda Wilbur, a neighbor of the suspect, 65-year-old Jimmy Lee Dykes, said she already had a disturbing run-in with Dykes after he fatally beat her dog with a lead pipe. She said Dykes later bragged to her

husband about attacking the dog, and continued with his threats that he would kill anyone that entered his property.

Top Stories:

Wilbur said Dykes was frequently out at night with a flashlight and rifle, patrolling the perimeter of his property.

Police have been negotiating with Dykes and say the boy is okay.

Watch the full interview:

This afternoon on Studio B, Shepard Smith interviewed a man who says Dykes once shot at him and his mother - with his infant daughter in the truck - during a confrontation near the suspect's property. Police said Dykes was due in court this week on a menacing charge for that incident.
