Authorities have made an arrest in the murder of a nonprofit CEO who was found dead in his Fairfax home. Officers say 33-year-old Joshua Daniel Danehower from Arlington, Virginia was arrested in connection with the murder of Gret Glyer.

Police say they found 32-year-old Glyer dead from gunshot wounds around 3 a.m. Friday after they responded to his home in the 9800 block of Bolton Village Court. Glyer was asleep in bed when he was shot multiple times by Danehower. His wife was asleep next to him at the time of the shooting.

According to police radio audio, a dispatcher said: “She heard a loud noise and believes her husband has been shot. She believes someone came into the house.” A next-door neighbor said he heard three gunshots and police had arrived before he could call himself.

Police said Glyer’s two young children were also in the home at the time but were not injured. They found a rear door to the home that was open but did not provide an answer whether there were any signs of forced entry or weapons recovered at the scene.

Danehower was arrested at Dulles International Airport, where he worked. Officials say he was arrested Tuesday night while heading to work.  Danehower was an acquaintance of Glyer but have no other information regarding their relationship. Danehower is being held without bond.
