Bail was set at $1 million for 16-year-old Oak Forest resident Derek Grib, 15612 Orogrande, who was charged as an adult late Tuesday with the stabbing death of a man during a fight at a party Sunday in Oak Forest.

Grib appeared for a hearing this morning at the Markham courthouse. He is charged with one count of murder and one count of aggravated battery. Prosecutors said he attacked 18-year-old Felix Jimenez at the party in the 15300 block of Arroyo Drive late Sunday.

A 17-year-old boy also was stabbed in the same incident and was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn for treatment.

Jimenez, of Oak Forest, arrived at the party about 11 p.m. and was greeting guests when a fight broke out, prosecutors said. Grib first hit Jimenez in the head with his fist, then pulled out a knife and stabbed Jimenez twice in the chest and once in the buttocks, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors declined to say what the motive was for Grib to attack Jimenez.

Grib's attorney Bruce Brandwein said Grib was acting in self-defense and it was Jimenez who attacked him. After the stabbing, Grib fled the scene but flagged down a police officer shortly afterward, Brandwein said.

Grib is due in court Aug. 4.

I'm going the parents of this boy don't get to the witnesses, because they are willing to do it -- it is already happening! Please make sure this does not happen!

And I believe if there was alcohol there, the homeowners should be in some kind of trouble as well for letting underage kids drink there.

FYI- Derrick Gribb is out, his parents put up the bond and he's pleading self defense... Yes, apparently 3 stab wounds on Felix and a tennis ball sized wound on his friend is self- defense... Apparently my definition of self defense is different..

What sources gave you the information that Derrick Grib is out on Bond?

To getfactsstraight,

Felix's godfather just called me and let me know that the family requested victim's notification (Cook County Juvenile Detention Center) on all of Grib's movements - they were notified that his bond was posted last night - he is OUT on BAIL.

To all:

Please let this serve as a retraction to my previous statement. There was misinformation given yesterday regarding Derek Grib. At this point, because he is being held in juvenile, information was erroneous and difficult to come by. Derek Grib is STILL in jail -- he is NOT OUT on bond.

THIS IS A LIE. Call the Juvenile Detention Facility at 1100 S. Hamilton in Chicago. HE IS STILL IN JAIL AND HIS FAMILY CAN ONLY SCRAPE UP $20-30,000O so far, according to the intake worker I spoke to.

What is the purpose of spreading lies like this? What are you trying to achieve?

Please see my retraction at response #10 (it was immediately posted after #9 to which you responded)- if you don't wish to read it, here it is:

"To all:

At this point, because he is being held in juvenile (Audi House), information was erroneous and difficult to come by. Derek Grib is STILL in jail -- he is NOT OUT on bond."

As I told you on a different blog - I will not respond emotionally in turn - if I make a mistake, I will retract it.

Again, you may not be aware, but you are coming off as very emotionally invested, angry, and defensive -- and although it can be off-putting to others, I (as I also stated in my other blogged response to you) WILL NOT argue with you.

Remember,

IN THE END PEACE WINS...
