Nursing home resident, 35, charged in older resident's death

SCOTTSVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A 35-year-old Kentucky nursing home resident has been charged with killing a 71-year-old resident of the facility.

Police said the defendant was arrested on a murder charge Thursday and was held without bond in Allen County Detention Center. They said he was formerly named Robert Reynolds but legally changed his name to The Reverend.

Allen County Coroner Darren E. Davis told the Daily News in Bowling Green that Gary Glueck was stabbed with a pen and had an electrical cord wrapped around his neck. Davis said the state medical examiner's office determined Glueck died from strangulation.

Scottsville police Detective John Rose said the men had been in an argument.

Scottsville Manor Administrator Lesa Keen said additional people are being brought in to reassure residents of their safety at the 40-bed facility.
