Dover Police arrested a third suspect Tuesday for the robbery and home invasion that precipitated the murder of Michael Gklotsos, the late Hollywood Diner owner killed Sept. 17.
Dover Police arrested Tiffany Ferraro, 16, of Fairless Hills, Pa., and charged her with robbery in the first degree, conspiracy in the second degree, wearing a disguise during the commission of a felony and home invasion, for her involvement in the break-in of Gklotsos' home, Lt. McKeown said.
Ferraro's apprehension followed the arrests of Joshua Lemonick, 20, of Newtown, Pa. and Angeline Terek, 23, of Bristol Township, Pa. on Sept. 19, McKeown said. Both were charged with murder in the first degree after they allegedly broke into Gklotsos' home the night of Sept. 17, then murdered him in a robbery gone bad, he said.
The Dover Police Department worked with local authorities in Pennsylvania towns to apprehend Lemonick and Newtown, McKeown said. Both were charged with murder in the first degree, home invasion, robbery, kidnapping and related offenses.
Gklotsos was murdered at approximately 10:30 p.m. that night, police said. By 10:42 p.m., Dover Police responded to a female caller who reported that she had been abducted from a residence in the 100 block of Acorn Lane and was released unharmed.
The woman told police that a man at the residence was assaulted during what she reported to be a home invasion. Dover Police Patrol Officers responded to the address in the 100 block of Acorn lane and discovered Gklotsos, 59 ,dead inside the residence.
The Delaware Office of the Medical Examiner determined that Gklotsos had been strangled.
Dover Police investigators knew a third person was involved in the break in based on what the female victim told police, McKeown said.
"We didn't know how she fit in," he said. "Through our investigation, we knew that she was involved. She left the residence prior to the homicide happening. We were able to identify her when we did our interviews in Bucks County, Pa."
Ferraro was later arraigned and remanded to the Stevenson House Detention Center in Milford in lieu of $64,000 secured bond.
Lemonick and Terek were extradited to Delaware on Monday, McKeown said. Lemonick was committed without bond to James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in Smyrna, and Terek was committed without bond to the Baylor Women's Correctional Institution in New Castle.
