A 24-year-old woman was being questioned this morning following the stabbing death of a 28-year-old man in what police described as a domestic incident late Thursday in the West Englewood neighborhood.

About 11:25 p.m., police responded to a call of a man stabbed multiple times at his home in the 5700 block of South Winchester Avenue, according to police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro. The man was dead when police arrived, he said.

Police believe the stabbing was domestic-related, Alfaro said.


The man was identified as Donnell LeFlore, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

LeFlore has an extensive criminal record, including convictions in a 1999 drug case and 2003 robbery case that resulted in prison terms. He also has pleaded guilty in battery cases and been charged at least three times with domestic battery, although charges in all three cases were dropped.

The woman being question in LeFlore's death was not the alleged victim in any of the cases against him.
