“It’s just so unreal. Well, now I have a little relief because they caught him,” Terri Ward, Bankhead’s mother said, 5 On Your Side reported.

Ward found her daughter Bankhead and granddaughter Da’Nilya tied to a bed and shot multiple times after Bankhead would not answer her phone. McClain was reportedly the mother and daughter’s downstairs neighbor.

“It’s the worst time of my life. I couldn’t do nothing but cry after I heard about the arrest and say thank you Jesus. Thank you Lord,” Ward also said, reported 5 On Your Side.

McClain was arrested Thursday and charged with three counts of first-degree murder, one count of first-degree burglary and four counts of armed criminal action.
