There’s a new but horrific twist in the murder of Nabra Hassanen, a Muslim girl who was walking back to her mosque from McDonald’s after Ramadan when she was abducted by an illegal alien and killed. Police now say she was raped before he killed her.
Virginia law allows prosecutors to pursue a death penalty case only under certain conditions. Those include murder in the commission of a rape and murder during an abduction with intent to defile.
The seven-count indictment handed up Monday actually includes four counts of capital murder, with occasionally graphic detail on the ways in which pr55osecutors believe the slaying qualifies for the death penalty.
The indictment accuses Martinez Torrez of both raping and sexually assaulting Nabra with some kind of object, reports CBS Washington, D.C. affiliate WUSA-TV. The Commonwealth Attorney couldn’t say what that object was, but the station says it happened at least twice.
Nabra’s death continues to resonate. More than 200 supporters wearing “Justice for Nabra” T-shirts showed up at a preliminary hearing Friday for Martinez-Torres. The hearing was delayed when Nabra’s parents had to be restrained from charging at Martinez-Torres. Nabra’s mother threw a shoe at him.
What’s even more awful is that she was with 12 friends when he abducted her – why didn’t any of them do anything? Don’t get me wrong, this evil maggot is to blame, but this whole thing could have been prevented had they not abandoned her.
