Four Chicago woman were arrested on murder charges for repeatedly stabbing to death a man they said "disrespected" them, authorities allege.
Morris Wilson, 30, was playing cards in 25-year-old Tiffany Cox's apartment early Sunday morning with her and three other women. An argument over a broken cigarette escalated and Wilson was asked to leave, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
As he walked out the door Wilson allegedly threw a beer at the door, prompting Miesha Nelson, 25, to feel he "disrespected" Cox. She convinced her they needed "to beat him up," Assistant State's Attorney LuAnn Snow told the paper, and the four friends went after him.
Nelson, armed with a knife, found Wilson in a nearby courtyard and allegedly stabbed him before passing the weapon to another of the women, Carmelita Hall, 25. Prosecutors say Hall then repeatedly stabbed Wilson while the others stomped, kicked and punched him, the Sun-Times reported.
Wilson appeared to have been stabbed more than 20 times, a source told the newspaper.
Believing Wilson had money on him, the women allegedly rummaged through his pockets.
Cox, Nelson, Hall and Roslind Ball, 22, were charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery.
