A Jordanian-born man facing a state murder charge in the 2012 shooting death of an Iranian student and women's rights activist also played a role in his son-in-law's death 11 months later, a federal prosecutor alleged Thursday.
A Jordanian-born man facing state murder charges in the shooting death of an Iranian student and women's rights activist was denied bond Tuesday on federal fraud charges for what authorities say was his involvement in a welfare and Social Security benefits scheme.
A federal fraud investigation led to a Jordanian-born man being charged with murder in district court in the shooting death of an Iranian student and women's rights activist two years ago, prosecutors said. Authorities are also now taking a new look at an unsolved killing to see if the cases are related.
