A Rogers Park man faces charges in connection with the stabbing death of his ex-girlfriend.

William Caponegri, 49, was charged Sunday night with first degree murder and violating an order of protection.

Chicago police say Karen Salino, 52, went to his apartment in the 6700-block of N. Glenwood even though she had an order of protection against Caponegri.

The two reportedly had an argument, and he is accused of strangling and stabbing her.
