Minnesota Man Indicted In Ex-Girlfriend’s Killing
HASTINGS (AP) -- A West St. Paul man accused of strangling his former girlfriend in August now faces a first-degree murder charge.
A Dakota County grand jury on Thursday indicted 28-year-old Marc Amouri Bakambia on one count of first-degree murder involving domestic abuse and three counts of second-degree murder.
Prosecutors allege Bakambia killed 24-year-old Dorothy Ann Redd in her West St. Paul apartment after she ended their relationship.
She was found dead August 10th of strangulation.
Court documents say a search of Bakambia's phone turned up a "selfie" photo in which he was lying next to Redd.
She appeared to be dead, and he was crying.
Bail is set at $1.5 million with no conditions.
Bakambia is due next in court Monday.
