A man who was stabbed in the head with an ice pick last week during a domestic incident in the Southwest Side Lawndale neighborhood died on Saturday.

Mario Jones, 28, was stabbed with the ice pick about 1:30 p.m. Dec. 17 in the 4100 block of West 19th Street, according to Chicago Police. Jones lived in the same block.

He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he died at 11:25 a.m. Saturday, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy Sunday found he died of a stab wound to the head from the ice pick, and his death was ruled a homicide.

The incident appeared to domestic in nature, police said. Nobody was in custody as Area Central detectives conducted a homicide investigation.
