JOLIET, Ill. (AP) — Murder charges have been filed against a Chicago man in the fatal stabbing of a 76-year-old Wisconsin man at casino hotel in Joliet, Illinois.

Police found Emanuel M. Burgrino of Hales Corners, Wisconsin late Sunday in a hallway of Harrah's Casino hotel. The Will County Coroner's Office said Burgrino was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

In a news release, police say investigators determined Burgrino was stabbed in the neck and chest as he left his hotel room.

Joliet police on Monday arrested 25-year-old Robert A. Watson after receiving information that a man matching the description of the suspect in Burgrino's death was at the Joliet Public Library in the downtown area.

Police say Watson was later charged with murder. Authorities did not reveal a motive for the attack.

It wasn't immediately known if Watson has legal representation.
