The victim was identified as Glenda Pope of Dayton by the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office.

Dayton police and medics were called around 6:55 p.m. Friday after a 911 caller said a woman was being stabbed in her apartment and that he could hear her asking for help, according to dispatch records.

“She stopped screaming but there’s blood everywhere out here,” the caller said.

“Pope and Lloyd were friends and he was visiting her at the time of the stabbing,” Dayton police Maj. Brian Johns said during a Monday afternoon media briefing on the stabbing deaths.

Officers arrested Lloyd on Friday as he tried to leave with the knife used in the attack, Johns said.

“We did recover the murder weapon from him,” said Johns.
