Man arrested for 3 fatal stabbings on Chicago West Side


CHICAGO -- Chicago police say they've arrested a man in the fatal stabbings of a woman and two in separate attacks on the West Side last month.

Superintendent Eddie Johnson told a Monday news conference the 24-year-old man was arrested Sunday but charges haven't been filed yet.

Johnson didn't say why the man attacked the three.

The Chicago Tribune reports 58-year-old Ronald Rockett was found dead with stab wounds to his neck in a building vestibule about 3:20 p.m. on Nov. 2, and a 64-year-old man was found dead on the ground with neck and shoulder wounds early on Nov. 15 in the same area.

A 57-year-old woman was found dead the night of Nov. 13 about 2 miles away after being stabbed in her back, head and neck
