A man has been released from custody after another man was fatally stabbed Tuesday in what police said was a domestic-related incident on the South Side.

Tracy Terrell Wright Sr., 31, was stabbed in the leg around 6:35 a.m. in the 5300 block of South Cottage Grove Avenue during a fight, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

He was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, police said.

Wright died of a stab wound to his thigh, an autopsy ruled. His death was ruled a homicide by the medical examiner’s office.

Police said the altercation was domestic-related and that a 28-year-old man was taken into custody.

Police on Thursday said the 28-year-old was released without charges but would not comment further.
