The man suspected in the stabbing death of his girlfriend at her family's home in Las Vegas has been booked into the Clark County Detention Center on a first degree murder charge.

Las Vegas Metro police confirmed the name of the suspect in the slaying of Sharon Jones as 53-year-old Ricardo Glasgow.

According to a CCDC booking log, Glasgow was charged with kidnapping, murder with a deadly weapon and resisting a public officer with a deadly weapon.

Metro spokesperson Bill Cassell also noted Glasgow was not cooperating with officials at the jail following his arrest.

Glasgow and Jones were visiting her relatives from California over the weekend, Jones' family said.

Those relatives, citing police, said Jones was stabbed 17 times by her boyfriend. The Clark County Coroner's office said Tuesday the 49-year-old woman suffered multiple wounds to the chest and abdomen.

Police said, after receiving the call in the area of Silverado Ranch Boulevard and Maryland Parkway, officers had to force their way into the home.

Metro disclosed little details on how they took Glasgow into custody.

Metro Homicide Lt. Ray Steiber also said detectives were still looking into what exactly prompted the incident that led to Jones' death.

Family members said the couple did not show any signs of trouble during the visit until Sunday night. That was when, they said, the woman was cornered by the boyfriend and attacked while relatives looked on.

Those relatives told FOX5 they tried stopping the boyfriend but were fearful they would be targeted.

"We threw stuff and he turned around and looked at me…He looked at [the witnessing family members] like he was coming after us so we got up on the roof," said the victim's aunt, Charlene Jones Barnes.

Barnes noted the couple had a volatile relationship and the boyfriend made threats in the past.
