SOUTH DEERING — Charges are pending against a woman in the fatally stabbing of a 22-year-old man Sunday evening, police said.
Around 5:45 p.m. Sunday, Kahlin Holloway, 22, was found fatally stabbed in the 9600 block of South Merrion Avenue, police said.
Holloway, of the 9600 block of South Euclid Avenue was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 6:35 p.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner.
Monday morning, a woman was in custody in connection to the stabbing and charges were pending, said Officer Janel Sedevic, a police spokeswoman.
Around 8:30 a.m. Monday, neighbors gathered across the street discussed the gruesome murder from the night before. They said an argument inside the house turned into a fight and eventually lead to the stabbing and the man's death on the driveway outside the home.
"It's a shame that boy had to lose his life," said one of the women, who lived in the neighborhood for 9 years. "But it's not a quiet house."
A man who identified himself as "Roove" said Holloway was his best friend and was just getting his life together after the birth of a son four months ago.
"All he liked to do was get money. He just came home from jail. He did three years," Roove said. "We went through all kinds of crazy things."
Court records show Holloway was recently released from Illinois Department of Corrections after being sentenced to six years for armed robbery in 2010. He was also convicted on gun charges in 2008 and sentenced to probation.
