Just in: Woman charged with murdering man who intervened in Edgewater dispute

Chicago police have announced charges against an Edgewater woman who allegedly stabbed a 21-year-old man to death when he intervened in a dispute this week.

Isis Monae, 23, will appear for a bond hearing Sunday afternoon on charges of first-degree murder and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, Chicago police said in a brief statement.

Officials have still not identified the victim by name.

He died after being stabbed in the chest when he intervened as a woman attempted to stab a couple on a sidewalk in the 5200 block of North Sheridan around 11:41 p.m., according to police.

Police searched the area for the woman and later staked out the third floor of an apartment building next door to the crime scene, where they believed a suspect might live.

According to a source, officers eventually arrested Monae around 12:30 p.m. at McDonald’s 5130 North Sheridan. She was taken into custody without further incident.

CWB Chicago will post a fully updated story after her bail hearing.
