A 60-year-old Ohio man was found stabbed to death in his home and police say a 38-year-old prostitute was arrested in connection to his death.
Around 3:30 p.m. June 21, police said they were called to the home of Kendall Combs after a family member found him dead.
According to authorities, the family member had not heard from Combs in a few days, so they decided to go to his home to check on him.
In order to get into the house, the family member had to break a back window and then found Combs dead, police said.
Officials said Combs had been dead for at least 24 hours and the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office determined his cause of death was a homicide.
Dayton Daily News reported police could not find Combs’ cell phone. His family had disconnected it, but re-connected it so investigators could try to find it.
Authorities said they were able to ping its location and found the cell phone with the suspect, Sarah Bierma, 38.
Bierma was interviewed by police before booking her into the Montgomery County Jail on a preliminary murder charge. Authorities say Bierma worked as a prostitute in the area.
According to police, there was no consistent connection between Combs and Bierma, but Combs picked up Bierma a week earlier.
