Autopsy results are back showing that a Chattahoochee man died as a result of a domestic stabbing incident. Now his family wants to see his girlfriend behind bars.

Weeks after a man is killed, family members say they're still awaiting justice after what they describe as an unfortunate loss.

Dickey's niece Lucresha Baker says, "She's taken a life, so we actually want her to be arrested."

Dickey's brother Calvin Dickey says, "Can't nothing bring him back but justice, maybe he can rest in peace if we get some justice done."

Chattahoochee Police say preliminary autopsy results reveals that 44-year old Larry Dickey died earlier this month after his girlfriend Martina McClay stabbed him in the chest.

The case is now in the State Attorney's Office for further investigation, but family members want officials to make what they call the right decision.

Dickey's niece Jamerica Smith says, "To me, no one seems to be concerned about my uncle except the family, and I would like for them to step up to the plate and show some concern. What if it was their brother, or their uncle, or their son, act the same way you would act if it was someone some kin to you."

Dickey's family says McClay should be put behind bars until a jury or judge makes a decision in the case.

Calvin Dickey says, "She walking around free as me and I don't think that's right. I think she should be locked up."

Loved ones say the autopsy supports their theory.

Lucresha Baker says, "Now that it's back and they're saying he actually died from the stabbing and there's still no arrest and we just want answers."

We did try to get in contact with McClay to get her side of the story.. We spoke with someone claiming to be her mother and she told me they did not want to comment.

The state attorney's office say it's now in their hands, but they would not comment on whether McClay will face any charges. We'll keep you updated as more becomes available.
An autopsy done Thursday will help police determine if a local woman will be charged in the death of her boyfriend. Police say Martina McClay of Chattahoochee stabbed her boyfriend in the chest and he died days later.

Chattahoochee Police say they've been called out several times for domestic violence incidents involving Martina McClay and her boyfriend Larry Dickey. But now police are investigating if the stabbing death was done in self defense or if there was criminal intent.

Family members and friends gather in Chattahoochee, mourning the death of Larry Dickey.

Dickey's niece Jamerica Smith says, "He's not an abusive person, so I don't know what could have brought this on."

Dickey's brother, Calvin Dickey says, "I just want justice for my brother."

Justice is the what the Dickey family says they're hoping for. Last Thursday, Chattahoochee police say Martina McClay stabbed her 44-year old boyfriend Larry Dickey in the chest at a home on Crawfish Island Road. Police say it happened during a verbal dispute. Dickey went to the hospital that day and died Wednesday.

Chattahoochee police chief Vann Pullen says, "Determining the cause of death for Mr. Dickey will help us to see if it's directly related to the stab wound or or if this is a medical situation that arose from his treatment at the hospital."

But family and friends say McClay's actions are what led to Dickey being in the hospital and she needs to be held accountable.

Friend of the family Morris McNealy says, "When you take a person's life, that's a person's life. And I really feel like she should be charged."

Dickey's niece Rastia Glynn says, "She took a life that no one can bring back."

Family members say nothing will bring Larry back, but they hope justice will be done.

Dickey's son, Larico Dickey says, "I just think about my daddy and why this had to happen to him."

We are still waiting on those autopsy results. We also tried to track down McClay to get her side of the story, but had no success today.
