A 37-year-old man has been charged with fatally stabbing another man inside a Woodlawn neighborhood apartment Sunday morning on the South Side.

About 8:15 a.m., Jacob Shelton got into an argument with 45-year-old Lucius Delaney inside the older man’s home in the 6600 block of South Vernon, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Shelton then used a knife to stab Delaney in the chest, authorities said. The older man was pronounced dead at the scene at 8:42 a.m.

The attack stemmed from a domestic fight, police said. Shelton’s home address is listed on the same block, though it wasn’t clear if he lived with Delaney.

Shelton was arrested after the stabbing and faces first-degree murder charges, police said Monday night. He is due in bond court Tuesday.
