A Murray man has been ordered to stand trial for fatally stabbing his ex-girlfriend's brother during an April altercation sparked by a broken marriage engagement.
Nazir Rahimi, 26, is charged with first-degree felony murder for the April 20 slaying of 19-year-old Farhad A. Mullahkhel outside the defendant's home.
Mullahkhel and three of his brothers went to Rahimi's to retrieve a cell phone belonging to their sister, who had recently broken off her relationship with Rahimi, according to preliminary hearing testimony.
Two witnesses testified that Rahimi stabbed the victim in the chest.
When police arrived, about 20 people were fighting outside the home. Rahimi is to appear in court for a scheduling hearing July 14. - Stephen Hunt
