A 24-year-old Chicago woman named Yasmine Elder is being charged with first-degree murder. Police believe that she killed her boyfriend during a fight.
But circumstances surrounding his death are very bizarre.
According to police, Yasmine was able to overpower 26-year-old Darrius Ellis, then poured bleach down his throat. And as a result of drinking the caustic substance about 1:45 a.m. Monday -according to a police news release - he died.
Officers found Darrius lying on the ground a little bit later in the early morning Monday, police said. He was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 3:26 a.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
