Milwaukee, WI – On Friday, Robbie L. Fields, 34, was charged with one felony count of first-degree reckless homicide in connection with last Monday’s homicide of Rumeal Ray Meatheney, 23, aka, “Melly Mel” at a Milwaukee Southside home. Fields turned himself to Milwaukee police on Wednesday, according to police. A $75,000 bond was set for Fields.
On Monday, March 9, police responded to the 1700 block of W. Mineral St. around 4:30 p.m. after shots were reported fired inside a home.
Apparently, Meatheney and Fields got into an altercation outside of a home where Field’s lived with his girlfriend in the lower level of a duplex. Both of them ended in the upper level of the home where the brother of Field’s girl was staying. Fields than fired multiple shots through a door striking Meatheney. Fields than fled the scene, according witnesses.
Fields had been distraught that people who knew him by an alias, Chris P. Klean had learned that he had HIV. Fields had bragged that he was a member of the Crips in California and had several felonies, indicating why he might have left California to avoid a third (three time loser) felony conviction that would send him to life in prison.
Fields in a fake Facebook (FB) account using his alias as Chris P. Klean had posted that he was strapped with two 9mm handguns and didn’t care what was being said about him. While on the run for several days, Fields even contacted the victim’s sister by text messages to say that he was sorry for killing Meatheney.
Klean’s FB account has been disabled.
