Jawaun Westbrook, 35, was charged with the death of Jessica Vilaythong, 24, and expected to appear in Central Bond Court Saturday, according to a news release from Chicago police.
Police said the 24-year-old bank teller was stabbed in the left side of her neck after having a "brief conversation" with a man while inside the bank around 11:12 a.m. Wednesday in the 600 block of North Dearborn.
The stabbing, police said, was captured on high-quality video, allowing detectives to see the specific details of the shirt the suspect was wearing, said Brendan Deenihan, chief of detectives with the Chicago Police Department.
