 CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago police are investigating after finding the decapitated body of a man inside an apartment on the city’s northwest side.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports the body was found around 2 a.m. on Christmas morning in a basement apartment.

An 18-year-old man who was standing outside the building was taken into custody. Police spokeswoman Amina Greer says charges are pending.

Authorities haven’t provided many details of the case, including the relationship of the two men. But Greer says a knife was found at the scene.
