Man accused of killing Muslim girl to be charged with capital murder

Man accused of killing Muslim girl to be charged with capital murder”

According to the AP, the grand jury ruling against the suspect in Fairfax County Circuit Court came down today.

Monday's indictment is the first indication that authorities believe Nabra Hassanen was raped.

The seven-count indictment handed up Monday includes four counts of capital murder, spelling out in sometimes graphic detail the ways in which prosecutors believe the slaying qualifies for the death penalty. Virginia state code allows prosecutors to pursue a death penalty under certain conditions, including premeditated murder during a rape.

On June 18, Hassanen was walking along Dranesville Road just over Loudoun County's eastern boundary with a group of teens returning to the All Dulles Area Muslim Society after an early-morning, pre-fast meal at a nearby restaurant.

Nabra and a group of about 15 friends were dressed in abayas, or robe-like dresses worn by some Muslim women.

It appears Hassanen was assaulted a second time near Martinez Torres' apartment complex, near the pond were her body was found. A search warrant says Martinez-Torres dumped her body in a lake. Martinez-Torres, who was driving, got into an altercation with one of the teens in the group, which scattered as the man began to chase them, authorities said. The medical examiner ruled that she died from blunt-force trauma to the head and neck.

Martinez-Torres faces eight counts in total including several related to sexual assault plus abduction with intent to defile, according to media reports.

"I kill you!" her mother said, throwing a shoe, NBC Washington reported.

Outside, supporters of the family held signs with Hassanen's photo.
