Around 3:50 a.m. July 17, Yorkville police were called to 10 Jones Place for a reported assault. Police say the two brothers got into an argument that led to John stabbing Daryl to death, and their mother called 911 when she heard them arguing.

When police arrived at the home, they found John on the front porch and they found Daryl dead from multiple stab wounds in a bedroom inside the home. According to the arrest narrative, Daryl was stabbed in the stomach, back and chest with a kitchen knife.

Police said that was not the first time they had been to their home.

John Ferguson is scheduled to be arraigned on the charges next week.
