A man was charged with murder after another man was found dead over the weekend in west suburban Aurora Township.

Carlos Fonseca-Gutierrez, 40, is facing two counts of first-degree murder and one count of armed robbery in the death of 51-year-old Mario Ying, the Kane County sheriff’s office said in a statement.

On Oct. 31, Fonseca-Gutierrez allegedly walked to a home in the 1500 block of Solfisburg Avenue where Ying was doing renovation work and stabbed him multiple times, Kane County prosecutors said.

Sheriff’s deputies found Ying, of Elgin, dead about 9:20 a.m. inside the home, the sheriff’s office said.

Detectives were approached by a witness who had “suspicions” about a person who lived in the 1700 block of Indian Avenue, less than a half mile from where Ying was found, the sheriff’s office said.

Investigators visited the home and spoke with Fonseca-Gutierrez who agreed to go to the sheriff’s office for further questioning, the sheriff’s office said.

The home where Ying was found dead and Fonseca-Gutierrez’s home are owned by the same landlord, prosecutors said.

Fonseca-Gutierrez was ordered held on $3 million bail and is due back in court Nov. 5.
