A man is charged with killing his 84-year-old mother inside the home they shared in the North West Side neighborhood of Dunning.
Joseph Narone, 54, is being held without bail. He reportedly told police that Satan possessed him and was responsible for the death of his mother but police believe Narone commited the crime.
Police were called to Narone’s house on Friday when he failed to show up for a meeting with a probation officer.
They found his mother, Elaine Narone, dead from multiple stab wounds, and Joseph covered in blood and cuts. Police also recovered two bloody knives from the scene.
Pet stores and veterinarians on the North Side are sending out a warning: someone is putting squirrel poison where dogs can get it, and it has killed some dogs already.
CBS 2’s Pamela Jones reports the squirrel poison looks much like rat poison, but is a different color.
People simply out walking their dogs are running across a deadly danger, without even realizing it.
Someone has been placing poison pellets right where pets can eat them and it has dog owners on guard.
“I’m just horrified by this. I mean i take my dog out in my neighborhood all the time,” one pet owner said.
Pet store owners say the stuff has led to the deaths of at least three dogs on the north side in the last month.
Rogers Bark Pet Salon owner Marie Winkeler said when she learned about it, “I thought it was tragic.”
One dog owner said her pet got so sick, the dog had to be euthanized Sunday. She came to Rogers Bark Pet Salon to tell her story.
“She came in very upset that her dog had died the previous day, because he ingested something, and the vet said it was squirrel poison,” Winkeler said.

Despite a call to re-examine liquor ordinances following a fatal stabbing at a downtown bar, Naperville Mayor George Pradel said Wednesday that he has no plan to do so any time soon.
“I don’t want to start fires where there’s no fires,” said Pradel, who is also the city’s liquor commissioner. “The police investigation is pending, and we should not be talking about it.”
City Councilman Doug Krause called for more enforcement of the local liquor laws after the weekend stabbing of Spring Brook Elementary School teacher Shaun Wild, 24, at Frankie’s Blue Room.
An ordinance approved in January would allow some bars and restaurants to close their kitchens after 9 p.m. to focus on selling alcohol. Krause argued that the change, set to go into effect in May, could result in increased demand on the local police force, stretching their resources too thin.

Administrators and staff at Naperville’s Spring Brook Elementary School devoted much of their time Monday to helping the school community absorb the news that second-grade teacher Shaun Wild had been killed.
Wild, 24, died early Saturday after he was stabbed during an argument at a downtown Naperville bar.
The staff at Spring Brook met over the weekend to finalize plans for addressing the tragedy when school resumed Monday.
Staff members were told to break the news without giving details of how Wild died, and parents of children in his class were invited into the classroom at the beginning of the day.
Wild’s death was the second tragedy Spring Brook Elementary has experienced since the beginning of the year. Fareeza Habib, 9, a fifth-grader at the school, and her brother Ashaz, 7, a first-grader, were killed along with their parents in an automobile crash while they were vacationing in India in early January.

A Naperville man has been charged in the stabbing death of an elementary school teacher and injury of two other people at a Naperville bar early this morning, authorities said.
Daniel James Olaska, 27, was charged this afternoon with murder and attempted murder in the attack that left Shaun R. Wild, 24, dead and two others wounded, said DuPage County state’s attorney’s spokesman Paul Darrah.
Officers were called to Frankies Blue Room, 16 W. Chicago Ave. in the west suburb, about 12:48 a.m. following a report of a person stabbed and found three victims stabbed in the bar, said Naperville Police Sgt. Gregg Bell, a department spokesman.
Olaska was scheduled to appear Sunday morning for a bond hearing in DuPage County Court, Darrah said.
Wild was from Brown Deer, Wis., according to a release from Naperville police. Statements from Spring Brook Elementary School in Naperville and from North Central College identified him as a teacher at Spring Brook and a graduate of the college.
All three victims had been taken to Edward Hospital in Naperville with serious-to-critical injuries, said Bell. One was recovering there following surgery and the third was treated and released, police said in the release.
Wild was a second-grade teacher at Spring Brook who joined the staff this school year, said Dave Worst, the school’s principal, in a statement on the website of Indian Prairie School District 204.

Three male teens have been charged in the beating death of a 41-year-old man at a bus stop earlier this week.
Darnell Chambers was waiting at the bus stop at 79th Street and Greenwood Avenue early Sunday morning when one of the teens asked another person with him at the bus stop if he could use his phone.
The man with Chambers refused, and one of the teens took a swing at him, police said. The man then ran to call police and as he did so saw “multiple offenders” start beating Chambers.
