Man Charged With Stabbing Woman To Death In Rogers Park

CHICAGO (CBS) — A man now stands charged with stabbing a woman to death this week in her Rogers Park neighborhood apartment.

Larry Smith, 57, was charged with first-degree murder for allegedly stabbing Rasheda Tucker, 35. Tucker was found dead around 6:30 p.m. in her apartment in the 7700 block of North Sheridan Road, in the North of Howard section of Rogers Park.

She was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

Smith, who lives on the same block, allegedly stabbed her multiple times during an argument, according to a police News Affairs release.

Police had initially questioned him as a person of interest in the case, police said.

Sources said Smith bragged to an ex-girlfriend or wife about the killing, and later turned himself in to authorities.

Smith was to appear for a bond hearing Wednesday, police said.

      @ra, I don’t know who you are, but you seem to have some sort of mental malfunction. What is wrong with you? Do you really hate the USA? Do you hate whitey? Every comment you make is negative. Maybe you should stop smoking those crack rocks.

    Why don’t we have a referendum on the next ballot, stating there will be a 10% increase in taxes to build and staff more jails, so these animals stop getting released early, and must serve full sentences!! I can assure you all law-abiding taxpayers would have no problem with this!

      Better yet reinstate the death penalty and use it for trash like this then they won’t be out early.

      Death penalty in
