Shortly after 4 a.m., Hahn stabbed both his family members at the home in the 4000 block of Anna Avenue, Hanania said.

His mother, 65-year-old Anastasia J. Hahn, was pronounced dead less than an hour later, Hanania and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy Thursday found she died from multiple injuries related to the stabbing and her death was ruled a homicide, the medical examiner’s office said.

Hahn’s 33-year-old sister was treated and released from Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, Hanania said.

Hahn was ordered held without bail at Cook County Jail, according to the Cook County sheriff’s office. His next court date was set for April 4.
