Woman gets 74 months in prison for killing of Thanksgiving dinner guest

The victim was a guest at dinner, but angered his host by lighting a crack pipe.

A woman who killed a man in a fight over Thanksgiving Day dinner has been sentenced to 74 months in prison.

Anenia Marie Hare, 49, pleaded guilty to 1st-degree manslaughter for the killing of Edward Caliph on Thanksgiving Day in 2017.

Caliph was a guest at Hare's apartment on the 5700 block of 33rd Avenue South, but angered his host when he lit up a crack pipe just as they were about to start dinner without asking for permission, and without offering to share.

What followed was a scuffle with Hare brandishing a TV antenna and a butcher's knife. A window was broken during the fight as Caliph tried to wrestle the knife from Hare's hands.

It ended with Hare on top and Caliph face down. He was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

Several of Caliph's family members spoke at the sentencing hearing earlier this month, with a niece saying they knew something was wrong because "he never missed a holiday."

"He won’t be here anymore to eat all our food, like he always did," she said, while Caliph's brother's Edward noted he had previously served in the Vietnam War.

According to the Hennepin County Attorney's Office, Hare described Caliph as her friend "and someone she enjoyed spending time with."

She added that she hopes that her family can forgive her one day.
