When they arrived, they found Guffey shot in the head, according to the prosecutor’s office. She was taken to a local hospital, where she died from injuries.
Hill was arrested the same day in first block of Watervliet Avenue, according to an incident report.
Witnesses told officers that Hill was angry with Guffey for stealing his cellphone a week earlier, according to a Dayton police report.
“On Monday evening, thanks to the dedicated work of officers and detectives, a suspect in the senseless killing of Faith Guffey was identified and located,” Dayton police Lt. Jason Hall said last week. “The facts and evidence in this case will be presented to the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office for consideration of formal charges.”
Hill had recently been released from prison in July after serving 28 years for an attempted murder conviction, according to the prosecutor’s office. He is being held in the Montgomery County Jail on a $1 million bond and is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday.
