A Chicago man killed his childhood friend after they argued and then fell asleep next to the victim, Cook County prosecutors told Saturday. Craig Grzesiakowsk 35 years old has been charged with first degree murder in the Thursday killing of 35 years old Jeffrey Ziolo, who was found dead by another houseguest. He’s being held on $2 million bond. Ziolo invited Grzesiakowski to his suburban Des Plaines home on Wednesday to listen to some music with friends. He warned them Grzesiakowski was a “hothead” who carried a knife, Cook County Prosecutor Julian Crozier told in court. One friend said cops he saw Ziolo and Grzesiakowski arguing before going to bed at around 3 Am. In the morning, another friend found Grzesiakowski passed out with a bottle of bleach next to him and lying next to Ziolo’s body. Grzesiakowski was then taken to a hospital, he reportedly told officials that he pushed Ziolo over a table and then stabbed him after they argued. The Cook County medical examiner’s office determined Ziolo had died from blunt-force trauma and had 3 stab wounds. Des Pla. Grzesiakowski’s next court date is scheduled for Tuesday.
