MORRIS – The man charged with stabbing his co-worker at a Minooka warehouse last month was indicted Wednesday by a grand jury for attempted murder.

Marshall Brown, 42, of Joliet, was indicted for attempted first degree murder, a class X felony, and aggravated battery with a weapon, a class 3 felony, according to a news release from Grundy County State's Attorney Jason Helland.

Brown was arrested July 17 by Chicago police on charges related to the July 11 incident, where he is accused of stabbing another employee at the World Class Distribution Inc. warehouse in Minooka.

At about 4:15 p.m. July 11, Brown and a 31-year-old Country Club Hills man were working inside a freezer unit at World Class Distribution, 1510 Cargo Court, when they began arguing, Minooka Chief Justin Meyer said in a previous interview. World Class Distribution ships products for Trader Joe's grocery stores.

"There was a disagreement between the two individuals and Brown allegedly stabbed his co-worker and fled the scene in a vehicle," Meyer said then.

The victim was taken to Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Joliet after being stabbed multiple times and was cooperating with police on the investigation.
