WORTH, Ill. — Police are investigating after two men died in an apparent murder-suicide inside a Worth residence.

At around 2:30 p.m., police were dispatched to the 7400 block of West 114th Place on the report of a disturbance.

A 27-year-old man arrived to the home and started stabbing the 56-year-old homeowner.

Both men died as a result of the incident.

A woman in her 50s, who is reportedly the ex-wife of the homeowner, was slashed by the knife.  

A woman close to the family said the 27-year-old man left behind a wife and two children.

“My niece is devastated I feel so sorry for her. She’s pregnant a little girl and a boy,” Rossini said. “I don’t know what this world is coming to.”
