Officers were called at 7:53 p.m. for reports of two people needing medical attention and found 28-year-old Don Turner Sr. stabbed in the chest and Hill stabbed in her right forearm, according to police.

They were both taken to Methodist Hospital Northlake Campus in Gary, where Turner died at 9:08 p.m., police and the Lake County coroner’s office said. His death was ruled a homicide.

Hill was treated at the hospital before being arrested and brought to the Gary Public Safety headquarters, police said.

She lived in the same block where the stabbing occurred, according to court records. Hill was charged in July, in a separate incident, with disorderly conduct and resisting an officer.
