Officers responded about 3:45 p.m. Friday to a domestic trouble call at 513 Nassau Ave. in Bolingbrook when the woman's daughter said her mother was dead, Bolingbrook police Lt. Michael Rompa said.

Shirley Marzo was pronounced dead at her home at 5:20 p.m., according to the Will County Coroner's office, which was scheduled tol perform an autopsy Saturday.

Police found the woman dead in the bathroom with multiple stab wounds to her back. A preliminary investigation determined she had a domestic dispute with her son, Rompa said.

The final cause and manner of death is pending autopsy, toxicological and police reports, the coroner's office said.
