Murder Parolee Attempts To Kill Ex-Girlfriend’s Boyfriend 

Daily Report February 12,2024

According to prosecutors, a Chicago man on parole for two separate murder cases attacked his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend with a machete on January 24.

According to a report obtained by Breitbart News, the suspect, identified as Marcos Gray, has since been charged with attempted first-degree murder, attempted murder during the commission of a forcible felony, home invasion with a dangerous weapon, and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

According to CBW Chicago, the victim, 38, and his girlfriend were sleeping at her home when they heard footsteps. The suspect stormed into the house after the bedroom door swung open around 4 a.m.

After walking into the bedroom, Gray approached the victim and attacked him with a large machete while yelling, “I’m going to kill you,”

The victim grabbed the machete blade and struggled with Gray as the girlfriend called 911. Upon hearing the sound of sirens, Gray ended the assault. According to Chicago police officers on the scene, Gray was seen through the kitchen window, covered in blood, with his hands in the air.

According to court filings, the victim suffered severe cuts to his hands that required stitches. Gray was then arrested immediately at the scene of the incident. He is due back in court again on February 20.

Court records also show that Gray was sentenced to life in prison for one of his previous murder cases, but that was reduced on appeal after other courts determined that it is unconstitutional to sentence people to life in prison for crimes committed as juveniles.

However, he was convicted of two murders as a juvenile. First, he was convicted in 1995 of murdering and robbing a Tennessee man who was visiting the Chicago area in March 1993.

According to court records, Gray shot the victim, identified as Edwin Carlock, 20, as Carlock dropped off a friend, Melvin Slaughter, on the South Side. There were two women and three children in the vehicle when Carlock was killed.

During sentencing, Gray was sentenced to 55 years for the murder and 30 years for the robbery. Gray was later convicted of participating in the July 3, 1993, murder of Sheilah Doyle, a suburban nurse and mother, during carjacking.

He was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder, but it was later reduced to 60 years, plus 15 years for attempted robbery.
