Police say a Dover murder is connected to 2 Pennsylvanians

After two days of an on-going investigation, Dover police have identified two suspects in what they say appear to be a homicide.

The investigation began Monday, when Dover police received a 10:30 p.m. phone call from a female claiming to be a victim in a home invasion. When officers arrived on scene at the residence in the 100 block of Acorn Lane, they found 59 year-old Michael Gklotsos unconscious.

Tuesday evening Dover Police Detectives were able to identify one of the suspects from a photo that was released to the media. As a result, several people called in with tips that revealed the suspect as 20 year-old Joshua Lemonick of Newtown, Pa. Investigators also learned that Lemoinck’s girlfriend, 23 year-old Angeline Terek of Bristol Twp., Pa, who had ties to the area and knew the victim, could have been involved as well.

Shortly after detectives obtained an arrest warrant for both suspects, Lemonick was apprehended at his Newtown residence Wednesday morning. A few hours later, Terek was caught and is being held in Pennsylvania pending extradition hearings.

According to police, it appears that robbery was the motive for the crime.
