BLOOMINGTON — A 22-year-old woman was jailed Tuesday after police said an early morning argument led to a man being fatally stabbed in Bloomington.

Police were called at 1:43 a.m. to the 400 block of North Roosevelt Avenue for a report of a stabbing. Quantez Brown, 24, arrived at an area hospital with a life-threatening stab wound and later died of his wounds, police said.

Leila Jackson, 22, was booked into the McLean County jail at 4 a.m. Tuesday and she is expected in court Wednesday afternoon. The two were acquaintances who got into an argument that led to the stabbing, police said, declining to elaborate on the incident Tuesday afternoon.

An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday in Bloomington.

The case is still under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact Bloomington police Detective Jared Roth at 309-434-2379 or Detective Curt Mass at 309-434-2534.

It was the ninth homicide recorded in the Twin Cities this year and the second fatal stabbing in Bloomington.

On Feb. 5, Nicole Elbert, 30, was stabbed to death after an apparent domestic dispute at 610 N. McLean St. Monroe Elbert, 50, has been charged with murder and is due in court Aug. 8.

Two people were shot to death June 10 in the 1200 block of Orchard Road, Bloomington. Hammet Brown, 26, who has lived in Chicago and Bloomington, has been charged with murder and faces an Aug. 1 status hearing.

Sydney Mays Jr., 25, of Bloomington is accused of killing three people and injuring a 4-year-old boy in a June 18 shooting at 311 Riley Drive in Bloomington. He was arrested last week in Milwaukee and is awaiting extradition to McLean County.
