Joshua Phillip Alexander Hohn, 19, a Prescott resident was charged with murder in the stabbing death of a man in Elyria Ohio, according to a news report from FOX 8 Cleveland.

Officers from the Elyria Police Department issued two arrest warrants Wednesday, Sept. 6, after discovering a man with stab wounds, later identified as Barry Allen Spreng Jr., 38, in the parking lot of Windsor Elementary School around 2 a.m.

Hohn and Phillip Hohn-Tucker, 21, of Elyria were believed to be travelling in Spreng Jr.’s vehicle and were located during a traffic stop in southwest Oklahoma City Thursday, Sept. 7. The two led highway patrol on a high-speed chase which ended when the car lost control and clipped a power pole.

One suspect was taken to the hospital in critical condition and the other was treated, released and taken to jail.

Hohn was charged with murder and Hohn-Tucker was charged with conspiracy to commit robbery.

Police also said they are looking for Gloria Louise Watton, 18, also a Prescott resident, who is considered a person of interest.
