Police say they were called to the Wong home on Abrams Drive after 7:00 Sunday morning by the 10-year old daughter of the couple, who can be heard on 9-1-1 audio pleading for dispatchers to send police to her home. The couple can be heard arguing in the background as the dispatcher talks to the child, even advising her to take the phone and her eight-year old brother outside the home for their own safety.
Audio from the call quickly escalates as the domestic altercation intensifies and screams of Tami Wong can clearly be heard in the background. AkronNewsNow has decided to not broadcast nor post on the web the 9-1-1 call in its entirety. The audio is exceptionally graphic and disturbing of a 10-year old calling for police and ambulance assistance during the incident when her father allegedly stabbed her mother.
Glenn Wong was also transported to the same Cleveland Clinic health campus as his wife; police say he was treated for non-life threatening injuries. He appeared in Stow Municipal Court this morning and bond was set at $1 million dollars. He remains in the Summit County Jail.

Upon arrival, officers located a female in a first floor bedroom suffering from multiple stab wounds. Twinsburg Fire & Rescue transported her to the Emergency Department at the Cleveland Clinic Twinsburg Family Health & Surgery Center where she expired from her wounds. The victim is Tami Wong, age 47.
Her husband, Glenn Wong, age 50, was taken to the Cleveland Clinic in Twinsburg and treated for non-life threatening injuries. He was subsequently arrested and charged with Aggravated Murder.
