A 15-year-old suburban Chicago boy is accused of fatally stabbing his 25-year-old brother during a domestic dispute, police said.
Flossmoor police officers were called to the 2800 block of Chayes Park Drive just before 1 a.m. Friday for a call of a domestic disturbance, according to a release from police.
Responding officers found a 25-year-old victim suffering from an apparent knife wound inside the residence, the release said. The victim was transported to South Suburban Hospital in Hazel Crest where he was pronounced dead, officials said.
Michail Tigue, 15, was charged as an adult with first-degree murder in connection to the stabbing death of his brother Steven Tigue, according to Chief Michael Pulic.
Police say the murder is the town’s first homicide in more than 30 years.
