He struck and killed Dean Amies, 48, while fleeing a police vehicle on Shaw Ave on August 7. “They’ve taken away our brother who we love very, very much and he was so important to us,” she said. Strickland showed little emotion as he entered guilty pleas to charges including manslaughter, reckless driving, failing to stop for police, and injuring a police officer with a vehicle.
