PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a Facebook feud between two Michigan women over the love of a prison inmate led to a high-speed car chase and crash that critically injured one woman, killed her friend and landed the other woman in jail.
Torrie Emery was arraigned by video Friday in Pontiac district court on several charges, including second-degree murder. Police say Emery was driving around with her 3-year-old daughter in the back seat when she saw her rival, Danielle Booth, in the passenger seat of another car. They say Emery rammed the car, then chased it at speeds of up to 100 mph.
Police say Alesha Abernathy, who was driving the second car, ran a red light and hit a dump truck. Abernathy was killed and Booth was critically injured. Emery and her daughter were unharmed.
