Man Holds Estranged Wife Hostage

A man is behind bars after he allegedly kidnapped his estranged wife.

Joe Dorsey, 25, entered a residence on Henderson Street in Andalusia, Saturday afternoon.

He waited for his wife and another man to arrive, and then fired one shot that missed the man.

He then forced his eight-month pregnant wife at gunpoint away from the residence.

Authorities located them later at a relative’s vacant home.

Hostage negotiators were able to secure her release and take Dorsey into custody.

Dorsey has been charged with numerous felonies and faces a kidnapping charge.

He is being held in the Covington County Jail without bond.
