If you're in a tight spot get the glue and a 4" X 8 " nailing plate like what is used to brace rafters. Hammer it into the side and get out the wood filler. Your glue joint will becaome the strongest area. These plates are like what is now used to reenforce the jamb around an new exterior door lock and deadbolt cutout area.

Is that broken on the hinge side?

Use finish nails & put it back together
Some wood glue & putty & paint & it will look OK
Then figure out how to unlock it without busting it down for next time.

All the doors that lock in our house can be unlocked with acsrewdriver or a dime. Our sons room does not lock...yet
