Fight Inside Illinois Town's Spanish American Club Leaves 1 Dead, 1 Accused Of Murder
A fight inside the Spanish American club in an Illinois town left one person dead and another facing a murder charge, police said.
Last week, police in Joliet, Illinois, announced the arrest of Jose Aguilar-Moreno, 30, in connection to the case.
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.
