Woman Accused Of Killing Thanksgiving Guest For Smoking Crack And Not Offering Her Any

After Anenia Marie Hare's guest lit up a crack pipe, she allegedly tried to scare him with a butcher knife and an antenna. 


A woman hosting a Thanksgiving dinner found it rude that her guest allegedly brought crack-cocaine into her home without her permission. Even ruder, he didn’t offer to share.

Thanksgiving dinner ended in horror when a Minneapolis woman allegedly killed her dinner guest for doing drugs at the table — and not offering her any.

Anenia Marie Hare, 47, of Minneapolis was charged with second-degree murder on Monday for allegedly killing 69-year-old Edward Caliph, according to the Star Tribune. Hare invited the man over to her place on Thursday for a Thanksgiving meal. But, as Hare told police, before "they started to eat, she looked over and saw the victim lighting up a crack pipe," the Star Tribune reported.

The sight allegedly enraged the dinner host, who reportedly admitted to police that she was further irritated by the fact that Caliph didn’t offer her any of his crack. Hare then grabbed an antenna in one hand and butcher knife in another. Why? In an attempt to look intimidating, Hare told police. She then stood in a doorway and told her guest that he wasn’t allowed to leave her apartment.

Caliph yelled for help and allegedly picked up a vacuum cleaner, using it to bash a window, in an attempt to break free. A scuffle ensued.

"I just grabbed him by the front and he went down," Hare allegedly told police, according to the New York Daily News. "To me it just felt like I put him in a deeper hold or something."

Caliph fell down and began snoring, Hare claimed. An autopsy confirmed that Caliph died from homicidal violence.

It is unclear if Hare has a lawyer that can speak on her behalf at this time.
