A 53-year-old man was stabbed to death Tuesday afternoon in the West Side Austin neighborhood, according to Chicago Police.

Dennis Murphy was stabbed at 2:16 p.m. in the 4800 block of West Superior, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Murphy, who lived on the block, was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said. An autopsy Wednesday found Murphy died of multiple stab and incised wounds, and his death was ruled a homicide.

A police source said the stabbing may be domestic-related.

A person of interest was in custody and taken to Loretto Hospital for treatment, police said.
