CHICAGO (STMW) — Charges have been filed against Mason Johnson in connection with a fatal stabbing in the Morgan Park neighborhood, police said.

Johnson, 24, has been charged with first degree murder after the fatal stabbing of his father, Kenneth Johnson, on March 24 in the 11400 block of South Rockwell Street.

Mason is still hospitalized at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, recovering from injuries he sustained during the altercation.

Kenneth was an aviation security officer and shift supervisor at O’Hare International Airport, according to Chicago Aviation Department spokeswoman Karen Pride.

“He seemed like a nice enough fellow,” a neighbor said, who added that Johnson cleared snow from his sidewalk during a recent snowstorm.
