Mohave County detention officer dead following COVID-19 complications

Officials with the Mohave County Sheriff's Office say one of their detention officers has died from complications related to COVID-19.

According to a statement released by the department on Oct. 11, Officer Anthony "Tony" Nicoletti was a six-year veteran of the office, and was working as a fugitive and warrants officer at the county's adult detention facility.

"Tony was a long time Kingman resident who was loved and respected by all who knew him and worked with him. We ask that the community keep his wife, children, and entire family in their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time," read a portion of the statement.

According to the Associated Press, data from Johns Hopkins University show the seven-day rolling average of daily new cases in Arizona dropped from 2,384.9 on Sept. 27 to 2,228.7 on Monday while the rolling average of daily deaths in Arizona declined from 48 to 34.6 during the same period.
