A South Side man has been charged with killing another man duringa dice game over the summer in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.

Corey Binns, 24, faces one count of first-degree murder for the June 24 shooting of 25-year-old Jeremy Clark, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Clark was playing dice about 4:30 p.m. on a sidewalk in the 5000 block of South Elizabeth when someone walked up, shot him in the neck and ran away, authorities said at the time. Clark, of the 5700 block of South Loomis, died at Stroger Hospital at 5:11 p.m.

An arrest warrant for Binns was issued a month after the slaying, and he was taken into custody on Thursday, according to Cook County Circuit Court records.

Binns, of the 5200 block of South Loomis, was jailed without bond and is due in court again Dec. 7, records show.
