A 59-year-old man stabbed during a domestic fight earlier this summer in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood died Monday evening.

About 10 p.m. July 28, a fight escalated between Kenneth Whitney and his wife at his home in the 7800 block of South May, and the 52-year-old woman stabbed him in the chest, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Whitney was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead at 5:05 p.m. Monday, authorities said. An autopsy Tuesday did not rule on the cause or manner of Whitney’s death, with final results pending further investigation.

Yvette Davis was arrested at the time of the stabbing, and investigators recovered the weapon, police said. She was charged with a misdemeanor count of domestic battery.
