A woman was stabbed to death and a man was taken into custody Thursday in a midday attack on the CTA Red Line that police described as a domestic dispute.
Family members identified the woman as Jessica Hampton, 25. They said Hampton, mother of a young daughter, was trying to get her life back on track after problems with sobriety. The young woman used the family home on South Laflin Street as her address, though she lived elsewhere, her aunt Delores Frazier said.

Frazier showed off two photos of the young woman in happier times: one last Christmastime and another of her smiling with her mother.
The family said they had only recently met a young man she apparently was dating but had no information about him.
