Dennis was scheduled for a jury trial back in February 2017 after being arrested and charged with the murder of 20-year-old Anteesha Monique Erica Banks who was fatally hit by the car Dennis was driving, fleeing police in a car chase. 



Anteesha Banks of Seminary Street in Prichard was killed instantly when Dennis plowed into her car on Prichard Ave near the intersection of Edison Street. Her 6-month old child was also in the car, seated in a child restraint seat and was apparently unharmed in the collision. The baby was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure.

Dennis has been booked into Mobile County Metro Jail and is charged with vehicular murder, possession of a stolen handgun, possession of controlled substances, reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident with injury and a number of other charges.
