Losing Your Marbles
- An Englewood man has been charged with the May murder of his older brother following a dice game, police said.
Chicago police from the department's mobile strike force found Curtis Marble, 26, of the 1500 block of West 63rd Street, hiding in an abandoned building Friday night after being alerted by Wentworth Area detectives of his involvement in the killing.
In May, Marble and his brother, Laird, 27, were involved in an altercation in the 6100 block of South Bishop Street -- the victim's home, according to the medical examiner's office -- following a dice game, when the suspect grabbed a handgun and shot his brother.
So Mrs. Marble has to bury one son and send another to prison, all over an Englewood dice game. The good news is that he'll be out in 4 years based on Cook County sentencing guidelines.
