CHICAGO (STMW) –Bond was set Monday at $800,000 for a Far South Side man charged with second-degree murder for the stabbing death of a man in the South Side Grand Boulevard neighborhood last month.

Judge Laura Sullivan set the $800,000 bond for Timothy Barber when he appeared Monday in bond court, prosecutors said.

Timothy Barber, 40, of the 200 block of East 135th Place, was arrested Sunday and charged with second-degree murder after being identified as the stabber, police said.

A friend found the 24-year-old victim stabbed multiple times in an alley in the 4000 block of South Calumet Avenue at 12:40 a.m. on Aug. 30, police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said at the time.

Lamont L. Larkins of the 4000 block of South Indiana Avenue was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

Barber is expected to appear Oct. 21 for a preliminary hearing.
