A man was charged with allegedly fatally stabbing another man in an Englewood apartment.

Rodney Crowder Jr., 28, was charged with first-degree murder, Chicago police said.

About 4:35 p.m. Sunday, Rodney Crowder Sr., 48, was found face-down in a bed with a stab wound to his chest in an apartment in the 6000 block of South Sangamon Street, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

He was taken to St. Bernard Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said. He died from asphyxia, strangulation and a stab wound, according to autopsy reports.
