Winnebago County Coroners office says 42-year-old Elizabeth Marquez died from multiple stab wounds.
On July 6, 2018, at approximately 7: 15 a.m., officers from the Rockford Police Department were called to a residence in the 2700 block of Norway Pine Road. There, they found a 42-year-old female, later identified as Elizabeth Marquez, deceased from apparent stab wounds. The victim’s husband, Noe Marquez, and two juvenile children were also located inside the residence. Noe Marquez was transported to a local hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. The two juveniles were unharmed.
Detectives are conducting a follow-up investigation into the incident. The cause of death for Elizabeth Marquez is unknown at this time. The Winnebago County Coroner’s Office has scheduled an autopsy for a later date.
During the course of the investigation detectives were made aware of an incident that occurred at the same residence on Thursday, June 28th, 2018. That information was later reviewed by the Winnebago County State’s Attorney’s Office. As a result, charges were authorized against Noe Marquez for the June 28th incident. Noe was later lodged in the Winnebago County Jail.

The charges against Noe Marquez are merely accusations and not evidence of his guilt. As with defendants in all criminal cases he is considered innocent unless proven guilty in court.
