Amecia Navro Enge charged with Maurice Meeks' homicide
Amecia Navro Enge was charged with second degree murder today after a bizarre incident over the weekend in which he allegedly struck two men with his car, killing them both.
The first man, 35-year-old Maurice Meeks, died the same day -- Oct. 2 -- after being taken to the North Memorial ER.
Another man, identified only as E.J. so far, died today at home. He had been taken to North Memorial too, but was released on Oct. 4.
According to the complaint, 27-year-old Enge had gotten into a fight with Meeks, jumped in his car, and first ran over E.J. twice and slammed into two parked cars.
Then Enge hit the gas and rammed the car into the front porch of 1012 39th Avenue North, where Meeks was standing in a group of people.
As Enge fled the scene, he ran over Meeks once more. Cops caught up to his damaged Chevy Lumina as he speed through north side streets.
Enge was booked into the Hennepin County jail today. Along with the murder charge, he also faces three counts of attempted second degree murder.
