New details: Chicago man accused of killing wife, 3 daughters in domestic fight

The man suspected of murdering his wife and three daughters at their Chicago-area house on Sunday allegedly told police that his dead spouse was a “money-hungry b***h” who “treats me like a f***ing dog.”

Maher Kassem, 63, was charged with four charges of murder and appeared in court on Tuesday.

According to police bodycam footage from the incident, Kassem allegedly told arriving officers, “They’re all gone,” and “I’m going to jail,” the Chicago Sun-Times said.

According to Tinley Park police, the shooting took place early Sunday in the 7400 block of 173rd Place.

Police attended when a guy called 911 and reported that someone had been shot in the house. When first responders arrived, they discovered the dead, all of which had been killed by shooting.

The 911 dispatcher referred to the situation as a “massacre,” according to police audio.

The women were identified later Sunday as Majeda Kassem, 53, Halema Kassem, 25, Zahia Kassem, 25, and Hanan Kassem, 24.

Prosecutors say Kassem was arguing with one of his daughters in the basement while his 19-year-old son slept.

Assistant State’s Attorney Scott Clark told the court that the kid overheard an altercation that escalated into a yelling match, followed by gunfire.

According to authorities, the youngster walked downstairs and discovered his mother lying on the floor, as well as one of his sisters with gunshot wounds.

Clark went on to say that the youngster witnessed his father shooting his mother twice more before shooting his other sister.

Kassem then contacted the cops himself at 11:21 a.m., Clark said.

He apparently cooperated with investigators and showed them where the murder weapon was found.

He is expected back in court on February 16th.
