Around 1 a.m. on Oct. 24, police responded to the Spanish American club for a reported stabbing. There, officers found two 40-year-old men outside the bar and injured. Both victims were taken to the hospital.

Jorge Chiguil-Toto, 40, died from his injuries, police said.

Investigators said an altercation started in the bar with a suspect, later identified as Aguilar-Moreno. Both victims were stabbed, and a 50-year-old man was hit in the face. There was no word on what led to the fight.

Aguilar-Moreno left before police arrived and was arrested days later. He was charged with first-degree murder.

"Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Mr. Chiguil-Toto as well as the others injured in this senseless act of violence." Joliet Police Chief William Evans said.
