Life sentence for Wong for Twinsburg murder

Twinsburg Bulletin Published:

Former Twinsburg resident Glenn Wong has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the February 2013 murder of his wife, Tami Mitchell Wong.

Summit County Court of Common Pleas Judge Paul Gallagher sentenced Wong to the maximum sentence Monday.

"There were some thoughts that overcame me," Wong told the court. "There were some things that she did to me that were very bad. She was painting a bad picture of me, deliberately antagonizing me.

"I really regret what I've done ... my biggest apology is going to go to my young daughter and young son -- they will suffer the longest. I hope some day they can forgive me."

After three days of emotional testimony from friends, family, safety workers and colleagues, Wong, 56, was found guilty March 28 of two counts of aggravated murder, one count of kidnapping, one count of murder, one count of felonious assault and one count of domestic violence in the matter.

The case was not eligible for the death penalty.

Bureau of Criminal Investigation Special Agent Dan Winterich described a blood-soaked crime scene in which Tami Mitchell Wong, 46, suffered 103 knife wounds.

The defense, which never called a witness, never disputed that Wong caused Tami Mitchell Wong's death on Feb. 24, 2013 --only that the crime was not premeditated.
