CHICAGO (WGN) -- A 31-year-old man was extradited from Poland Thursday after he allegedly stabbed his roommate to death in 2013.
Mateusz Zabrzenski, 31, has been charged with first degree murder after police said he was identified by a witness.
On June 24, 2013, police were dispatched to the 6500 block of West Addison Street on the report of a stabbing. The victim, Sarah Kresilova, 24, who was Zabrzenski's roommate, was pronounced dead at the scene after suffering eight stab wounds.
Police said Zabrzenski then went to his mother's apartment and allegedly gave his mother the murder weapon, a butcher's knife. Police said Zabrzenski's mother borrowed $2,380 for him to flee to Poland.
The Medical Examiner's office determined she was stabbed in the head, neck, three times in the chest, four times in the abdomen.
