Two men charged in connection with a police chase that ended in a deadly crash on the city's South Side will appear in court Tuesday. The driver, Markese Hall, is charged with reckless homicide. His front-seat passenger, Jajaun Hunt, is charged with a gun violation and aggravated assault.

The pair will appear in a Markham court.

The chase began in Calumet City early Friday after police say Hunt pointed a gun at a woman in another car. It ended in a crash near 115th and Halsted. The car was apparently taken in a carjacking the day before.

The crash killed passengers Brittany Johnson and Clarence Rounds and critically injured a 15-year-old girl who was still in the hospital Tuesday.
