DAYTON — Update@6:09 p.m. (Jan. 8):
A person of interest in the December Caliph Court murder was arrested Monday on unrelated charges, Dayton police announced Monday.

Dayton police homicide detectives said they will meet with prosecutors this week regarding potential charges in the murder of Dauntiaunna Brown, 18. She was gunned down in the 1400 block of Tampa Avenue in December.
“I mean honestly, if that's the right person who actually did it, then it's a good thing because nobody deserves to lose a child and the person just go free,” neighbor Mynia Daniels said of Hurston’s arrest.
Brown's friends and family have kept balloons up and candles burning at her unused apartment ever since her death, they said.

The city of Kettering plans to spend $624,000 to update and replace the police department’s current computer-aided dispatch (CAD) and records management system (RMS).
City Manager Mark Schwieterman told City Council that the current Cisco system used by police for CAD and RMS is no longer supported and serviceable. He said the staff recommended the city enter into a contract with Spillman Technologies to replace both of those systems.
“The estimated cost is $624,000,” Schwieterman said. “At the end of the day, our computer-aided design system will be the same for both police and fire utilizing the Spillman system.”
Council voted unanimously to proceed with the upgrade, and that was good news to Police Chief Chip Protsman.
“It is a significant upgrade for us. As a matter of fact, we have had our CAD and RMS system since the 1980s,” he said. “This is also the system that is going to be used by both the police department and the fire department, which obviously is an advantage to us because our dispatch center does both police and fire.”
