A woman was released from police custody after citing self-defense in the fatal stabbing of a 42-year-old man during a domestic argument Sunday on the South Side.

After being choked and fearing for her life, the woman went to the kitchen of a Park Manor home and grabbed a knife, Chicago police said.

She then stabbed Maurice Galvan, who later died of a stab wound to his neck at the University of Chicago Medical Center, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

The stabbing happened about 11:30 p.m. in the 7400 block of South Evans Avenue, police said.

The woman was arrested at the scene but released later after citing self-defense, police said.
