CHICAGO (STMW) — Bond was denied Sunday for a 24-year-old man charged with the June 26 murder of a 77-year-old man in his South Side home.
At 10:25 p.m. on June 26, Donald Ellens, 77, was found dead in his home in the 9000 block of South East End Avenue by relatives who had not heard from him for some time, police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office said.
Ellens had multiple stab wounds over his body, police said.
On Saturday police announced that 24-year-old Terrance M. Olden, of the 7100 block of South Constance, had been charged with first degree murder and armed robbery in connection to Ellens’ death. Olden was arrested on Thursday, police said.
Bond was denied for Olden at a hearing Sunday.
Police have not offered many details on what happened between the two, but “it appears this was not random,” police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli said. “They knew each other,” he said.
