Bolingbrook man found not guilty of mom's murder due to insanity

BOLINGBROOK – A Bolingbrook man charged with the December 2011 murder of his mother was found not guilty Oct. 11 by reason of insanity, according to media reports.

Psychiatric evaluations found Michael Marzo, 25, was suffering from schizophrenia when he likely stabbed his mother in the back Dec. 2, 2011, at their home in the 500 block of Nassau Avenue, media reports said.

Bolingbrook police officers initially responded to the home after receiving a call regarding a domestic dispute, according to a previous report from Suburban Life Media. While en route to the scene, a female caller contacted police to report that Shirley Marzo was dead in the home’s bathroom.

Upon arrival, police discovered the body of Shirley Marzo in the bathroom with apparent stab wounds to the back, Suburban Life Media previously reported. The woman who placed the call to police was identified as Shirley Marzo’s daughter.

Michael Marzo was later taken into custody in Chenoa, Ill., about 80 miles south of Bolingbrook, after being located by state and Chenoa police there, according to previous reports from Suburban Life Media.

He was subsequently charged with first degree murder and transported to the Will County Adult Detention Facility, Suburban Life Media previously reported.

Marzo will undergo additional evaluation and treatment from the Department of Human Services, according to media reports.
