Pierce County prosecutors have charged a 30-year-old man with first-degree murder in a drug related slaying on Fox Island in November.
According to prosecutors, Jacob Glenn, 23, was stabbed in the chest near a gas station after he got into a car with Jason Madron, 30, of Tacoma.
Police and prosecutors allege that Madron and a group of friends drove to Fox Island from Tacoma on Nov. 30 to meet the victim for a drug deal. The victim got into the car with his would-be client who attempted to rob, rather than pay, the man, prosecutors said.
The victim and his assailant got out of the car, fighting, and the victim was fatally stabbed, prosecutors allege. According to the Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office, a major artery was severed.
The victim’s body was discovered the following morning by a gas station customer.
