    Gary A. Kamen was charged with two counts of first degree murder.

    A man was charged with fatally stabbing a female relative Friday in a domestic incident in north suburban Deerfield.

    Gary Kamen, 55, was charged with two counts of first degree murder in connection to the death of Karyn Kamen, 53, according to a statement by the Lake County Major Crime Task Force.

    Police were unclear about their relationship, but said Gary Kamen lived in the home where the stabbing occurred and that Karyn Kamen was a “family member.”

    Deerfield police responded about 3:40 p.m. Friday to a home in the 1000 block of Peachtree Lane and found the Karyn Kamen with multiple stab wounds, according the release. She was taken to a hospital with significant injuries and was later pronounced dead.

    Gary Kamen was arrested that evening, according to the release. He was scheduled to appear in court for a bail hearing Sunday, where a bond was set at $10 million.

    An investigation indicated that stabbing was an isolated domestic incident, the task force said.

    The Lake County Coroner scheduled an autopsy for Monday morning, according to the release.

    Authorities say he is back in court on Tuesday morning
