HASTINGS, Minn. (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 Aug. 10 of strangulation.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press (https://bit.ly/1zfwrPc ) reports 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.
