Charges: Woman kills man after he lit up crack pipe before Thanksgiving dinner

- A 47-year-old woman is charged after allegedly killing a 69-year-old man in her south Minneapolis apartment on Thanksgiving.

Anenia Marie Hare faces a second degree murder charge with intent for the killing of Edward Caliph.

According to the criminal complaint, police responded to Hare's apartment in the 5700 block of 33rd Avenue South after receiving four 911 calls from her.

When police arrived they found Caliph lying face down near a broken window and found other signs of an apparent struggle in the apartment. The man died at the hospital.

In an interview with police, Hare said she invited Caliph over for Thanksgiving dinner, but got angry before the meal when she saw him lighting up a crack pipe. She said she was upset because he didn't ask for permission to smoke or offer to share. So, she then stood in the doorway in an "attempt to be dominating" and refused to let him leave, while holding a television antennae and a butcher knife.

She told police Caliph yelled for help and broke out a window with a vacuum cleaner. She then grabbed him and fell on top of him. He continued to struggle until he "started snoring."

In her 911 calls, Hare said she put "his a-- to sleep" and that she put him "in a sleeper hold or something."

According to the autopsy, "homicidal violence" was ruled as cause of death.
