SHARE Woman charged with stabbing Evanston man to death

A woman has been charged with stabbing a north suburban man to death early Monday on the South Side.

Veronica Wilson, 48, is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of 46-year-old Andrew Brown, according to Chicago Police.

Brown was found unresponsive on the sidewalk in the 3000 block of East Cheltenham Place about 12:20 a.m., authorities said.

Brown, of the 1400 block of Chicago Avenue in Evanston, was pronounced dead at the scene at 12:49 a.m., authorities said.

Authorities initially thought he had suffered a gunshot wound to the chest. However, an autopsy Monday found Brown died of multiple stab and incise wounds, and ruled his death a homicide, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Police did not provide a motive for the murder.

Wilson, of the 7800 block of South Shore Drive, is scheduled to appear in bond court Wednesday.
