A 43-year-old man accused of fatally stabbing a man early Saturday morning in the South Shore neighborhood has been ordered held without bond.

Brandon Young of the 2200 block of East 102nd Street was charged with first-degree murder after he was identified as the person who fatally stabbed Dorian D. Smith, 43, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

At 12:25 a.m. Saturday, police responded to a call of a battery in progress in a home in the 7800 block of South South Shore Drive. Police found Smith in a hallway on the 2nd floor with stab wounds to the head and body, authorities said.

Smith, of the 8100 block of South Bishop Street, was transported to Northwestern Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 1:11 a.m., authorities said.

An autopsy Saturday found he died of multiple sharp force injuries, and his death was ruled a homicide.

Young was ordered held without bond Monday, according to the Cook County sheriff’s office. He was next scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.
