Man arrested, charged in stabbing death of 67-year-old Lockland woman

LOCKLAND, Ohio – Authorities arrested a man they say stabbed and killed a 67-year-old woman in her Lockland home Tuesday.

Daniel Johnson, 26, was charged Friday with the aggravated murder of Wanda Glenn and was given a $600,000 bond at his arraignment Saturday morning.

Glenn was found by Lockland police in her home near Arlington Avenue and Davis Street at about 11:30 a.m. Officers said there was a large knife in her neck.

Police said Glenn activated a medical alert device around her neck when she was stabbed, which led police to her location.

Shortly after investigators said Johnson killed Glenn, they said he walked seven doors down and robbed his own grandmother.

Police said he demanded she give him money. His grandmother later reported the crime to police.

Glenn lived alone and left her back door open, police said. Johnson knew her.

Johnson was picked up by Reading police during a traffic stop earlier this week, and was charged with the robbery of his grandmother.

Authorities upgraded those charges to aggravated murder at 1 p.m. Friday after DNA from the scene of Glenn’s stabbing matched his.

He was injured at the scene as a result of the offense and that assisted us in identifying who he was," Lockland Police Lt. Terry Wilkerson said.
