Man charged with stabbing woman
A New Chicago man has been charged with four felonies, including aggravated battery and battery, after authorities said he stabbed his former girlfriend, then fell asleep in the recliner while she lay injured on the floor.
William Lloyd Moore, 46, of the 2900 block of Dekalb Street, faces six to 20 years on the two most serious charges stemming from a Sept. 26, 2010, incident.
Moore’s former girlfriend, who was hospitalized for two weeks with injuries to her lung, told police she and Moore had been drinking at the Waterfront Lounge in New Chicago. They had an argument at the bar and Moore struck her in the head with her cell phone, causing a gash. They left the bar and went home, but another argument ensued while the couple was having sex. Moore left the bedroom, returned with a knife and stabbed the woman in the right lung and the right side of her chest.
The woman, who was 46 at the time, told police she was unable to move from the floor and didn’t have access to her cell phone at the time to call for help. While she lay bleeding, the woman said she could hear Moore, who was intoxicated, snoring loudly in another room in the house, the probable cause affidavit states.
When Moore woke up, the woman told police she begged Moore to go to a nearby convenience store to call an ambulance. He left and returned a short time later, and medics then arrived to take her to the hospital.
