LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
A man suspected in the stabbing death of his girlfriend inside her family's Las Vegas home was already a fugitive wanted for a parole violation in California, police said.
Las Vegas Metro police said Ricardo Glasgow, 53, had to be subdued by officers with the use of an electronic control device when they were called to a home late Sunday near Silverado Ranch Boulevard and Maryland Parkway.
Police said Glasgow was booked into Clark County Detention Center on charges of murder with a deadly weapon, kidnapping with a deadly weapon and resisting a public officer with a deadly weapon. Police also said the suspect was wanted for a parole violation stemming from an attempted murder charge in 2005.
According to an arrest report, Glasgow, wearing a blood stained shirt, had already encountered an officer when police first arrived outside the family home of victim Sharon Jones. Glasgow disobeyed commands to stop and re-entered the home, the arrest report said.
The arrest report said once a trio of officers entered the home, Glasgow challenged them, saying, "Come get me," and "Come see what I'm doing."
Glasgow, in the report, was seen straddling Jones' limp body in the home's kitchen. He refused commands to get off Jones, which led officers to use a device to subdue Glasgow, the arrest report described.
The officers were able to arrest Glasgow and give aid to Jones, police said. Jones later died at University Medical Center shortly after 3 a.m. early Monday.
In the arrest report, police interviewed three of Jones' relatives who were inside the home at the time of the incident. They all said they heard the couple arguing, according to the report. The report also showed that two of the witnesses saw Glasgow stab Jones in the chest while she was sitting at the bottom of a flight of stairs.
"Nobody in this house can save you," Glasgow was quoted as saying during the incident by a witness in the arrest report. "You're going to die."
The arrest report also described how two of the family members tried to stop Glasgow in the incident. They threw objects at the suspect but later fled to the roof fearing they would be targeted, the arrest report said.
Police said two large knives were recovered from the scene – one outside the home and a second on the kitchen floor.
Police also said in the arrest report that Glasgow and Jones had been living at the home since last month.
