TWINSBURG, Ohio -- The 9-1-1 call is chilling and heartbreaking.

A 10-year old girl pleads for police to come to her home because "my dad is murdering my mom." 

Twinsburg police say Glenn Wong, 50, stabbed his wife, Tami Mitchell Wong, 46, to death.

The couple's 10-year-old daughter, and 8-year-old son were both inside the home during the horror that unfolded Sunday morning at their Abrams Drive home.

The vicious crime in an upscale Twinsburg subdivision has stunned neighbors. Some have heard the couple arguing loudly in the past, but no one expected it would lead to murder.

Other mothers in the neighborhood hold back tears, thinking about the kids.

"I mean, she's only 10, and I know her," said neighbor Shannon Mesarch. "She has her whole life ahead of counseling, you know? I don't know what the neighborhood is doing, I don't know if it's premature, but she has neither parent."

Police say the children are now staying with a relative.

Wong appeared before a Stow Municipal Court judge Monday morning, charged with aggravated murder. Though he has no criminal record, because of the serious charges, and Wong's personal assets, the judge set bond at $1 million cash.

If he does post bond, prosecutors say Wong would have to wear a GPS ankle monitor and turn in his passport. His case will be transferred to Summit County Court, but no court date has been set yet.
