WALKER COUNTY, Ala. (WIAT) — Safety improvements are in the works at the Walker County Courthouse.

The improvements are being implemented in the office where a man made a death threat that led  to a day-long manhunt in January.

New glass windows have been installed for the public to use outside of the Circuit Clerk’s office.

The windows have an opening for documents, but otherwise the glass will protect workers from any physical contact with the public.

In January, Aubrey Dill entered the office and threated to kill his wife and then eat her corpse to get rid of the evidence. Dill made the threat after a judge dismissed his petition for protection from abuse.

Workers at the courthouse hope the next step will be to install metal detectors at the courthouse entrance.

Meanwhile, records show Dill remains in jail with a grand jury set to decide whether or not he will be indicted.
