A Minneapolis man is charged with fatally shooting his neighbor and her adult daughter following an argument last weekend.
Forty-six-year-old Richie Vessel faces two counts of second-degree murder with intent in the deaths of Eileen Mark and Jennifer Angerhofer. A criminal complaint says a witness told police he heard loud music, an argument and then the gunshots that killed the two women inside Mark's apartment. Vessel lived across the hall.
Authorities say the 67-year-old mother died of a gunshot wound to the chest. Her 42-year-old daughter, from Coon Rapids, was shot in the face late Saturday night.
Police say they found a trash bag in the apartment complex's trash bin that contained the suspected weapon. It was not immediately clear if Vessel has an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
