DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A suspect has been charged with murder after police found a man stabbed to death in his Riverside home. However, it may be some time before he faces the Ohio charges.
On Thursday, Dec. 1, the Riverside Police Department announced that Cornelius Brogan had been charged with aggravated murder, murder, felonious assault and aggravated burglary after police found he was the last person to contact a stabbing victim, 28-year-old Scott Patrick Hannah.
The Riverside Police Department said in a press conference that Brogan and Hannah used to live together and had a romantic relationship in the past.
At this time, police do not know what events lead up to the alleged murder.
On Sunday, Nov. 27, officers conducted a welfare check at the home and found Hannah dead in his home. Investigation showed the man had suffered multiple stab wounds, and police began investigating as a homicide.
Police used Ring doorbell footage to find out that Brogan was allegedly the last person to be seen at Hannah’s home besides Hannah himself. Using his phone number, they tracked him to Logan County, Kentucky.
That night, Brogan was arrested in Kentucky after police attempted to obtain his car for the investigation. As deputies attempted to obtain the vehicle, authorities said Brogan allegedly tackled one of the deputies to the ground and attempted to take the deputy’s rifle from him.
He was initially charged with assault on a police officer, disarming an officer, resisting arrest and possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. On Thursday, Dec. 1, Riverside Police said. Brogan is currently being held in Logan County, Kentucky on a $500,000 bond.
Brogan was additionally charged with aggravated murder, murder, felonious assault and aggravated burglary, Riverside Police announced on December 1. At this time, authorities said they do not have a timeline for the extradition process, due to the severity of the charges Brogan faces in Kentucky.
The City of Riverside Police Department would like to thank the Logan County Sheriff’s Department and the Russellville Police Department in Kentucky for assistance with this investigation.
Since discovery of this senseless act of violence, the City of Riverside Police Department has worked constantly to build a solid case and present charges to the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office.Major Matthew Sturgeon – Riverside Police Department
