UPDATE AT 6:31 APRIL 24: The couple involved in an attempted murder-suicide had plans to get married, according to the victim's daughter. 

Erica Taylor said her mother, Glenda, and suspect Steve Miller were planning a wedding, but Miller called the plans off two times.

"I knew after the second time she wasn't going to want to be with him," Taylor said. "She made plans to get her own place." 

Taylor said to her knowledge police never got involved with any kind of domestic dispute between her mother and her suspected killer. 

"Relationships have problems, but she was in a good place," Taylor said. "Really this is just a shock. I'm just really appalled." 

Miller also had no criminal history with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and served as a juvenile probation officer for 16 years.

UPDATE AT 12:51 APRIL 24: The Clark County coroner has identified the deceased as 45-year-old Glenda Taylor of Las Vegas.

UPDATE AT 6:55 P.M. APRIL 23: The suspect in a deadly stabbing is Steve Miller, a Clark County juvenile probation officer, according to county spokesman Erik Pappa.

Miller has worked for the county for at least 15 years.
