The woman was found in an alley near the 4500 block of North Magnolia Avenue early Thursday and pronounced dead at the scene. Her death was ruled a homicide by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office. Her name hasn’t been released.

Tillman was arrested around 10:30 a.m. Thursday, four hours after the woman was found, police said. He was charged Saturday and jailed without bail at a Sunday hearing.
