CHICAGO - An Uptown man has been charged with first degree murder in the death of a woman found dead in an alley Thursday morning in the same neighborhood on the city's north side, authorities said.[1]

Chicago Police officially charged Tyson Tillman, 38, of the 4500 block of N. Magnolia Avenue, also in the Uptown neighborhood, with one felony count of first degree murder.

A woman was reportedly found unresponsive in an alley around 6:30 a.m. the morning of July 7th on the 4500 block of N. Malden Street in the Uptown community area. You can read our original report here: Woman found dead in alley in Uptown

The location where the woman was found is just the next street over from where Tillman lives.

Police allege that Tillman and the woman got into a “physical altercation” and the woman died of multiple injuries in a fall. The woman has yet to be identified.

Tillman was reportedly arrested Thursday morning approximately four hours after the woman was found.

He's due in bond court today.
