Father Stabs Daughter's Fiancè Nine Times [PHOTO]
Claude Jones, 50, of the 2000 block of Georgetown Lane in Waukegan, was charged with aggravated battery using a deadly weapon.
Jones got into an argument with his future son-in-law in the 8900 block of South Aberdeen Street in Washington Heights on Nov. 8, 2012, according to court documents.
Jones struck his future son-in-law in the head, and they started fighting, Assistant State's Attorney Christina Brewer said.
Prosecutors did not give details in court as to what the two were arguing about.
The victim was stabbed nine times, Brewer said. He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where Brewer said he required 32 stitches for stab wounds to his chest, shoulders and back.
His age was not available.
Jones was arrested at his home and identified as the attacker by the victim on Friday, six months after the stabbing, according to court documents.
Prosecutors did not say why he was not arrested until months after the incident.
Judge Maria Kuriakos Ciesil ordered Jones held on $400,000 bail Sunday
