CHICAGO (CBS) — A man died Saturday after he was stabbed in the head with an ice pick last week in a domestic incident in the Southwest Side Lawndale neighborhood.
Mario Jones, 28, was stabbed with the ice pick about 1:30 p.m. on Dec. 17 in the 4100 block of West 19th Street, according to Chicago Police. Jones lived in the same block.
He was pronounced dead at 11:25 a.m. Saturday at Mount Sinai Hospital, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy Sunday found he died of a stab wound to the head from the ice pick, and his death was ruled a homicide.
The incident appeared to domestic in nature, though nobody was in custody as Area Central detectives conducted a homicide investigation.
