Anenia Marie Hare detailed to authorities that her guest, 69-year-old Edward Caliph, did not ask if he could smoke the substance or if she wanted any. Things escalated when Hare took a butcher knife and antennae to appear intimidating, and told Caliph he couldn’t leave.
“Caliph started yelling for a neighbor to call 911, and allegedly broke a window in the living room with a vacuum cleaner trying to escape,” reads the New York Daily News. “Hare allegedly grabbed her guest by the shoulders and fell on top of him as he fought to get the knife from her.”
Hare says that her guest fell face down on the ground and “he started snoring.” After being taken to the hospital, he was pronounced dead, and an autopsy shows that he died of homicidal violence.
Hare, 47, was charged with second-degree manslaughter, and is currently being held on $500,000 bail.
