New information has emerged in the case of a man from Lisburg, Virginia, accused of murder after fleeing to Dubai for the December murder of Ashburn woman in her home.
At the Ludown County Sheriff’s Office said 57-year-old Najat Chemlali Good was found on December 30th with three gunshot wounds. She later died at the hospital.
Furkan Saeed, 40, will stand trial for murder.
A video from a surveillance camera on December 30 showed a tall skinny man in dark clothes approaching her door at 7:29 p.m. One minute later, surveillance cameras recorded three pictures, according to indictment documents.
A video surveillance taken three days earlier, on December 27, showed a silver Toyota Camry driving around the neighborhood.
On the same day, a man who identified the recordings from the surveillance camera on December 30 approached Hood’s door and spoke to a witness who described the man’s behavior as “suspicious,” according to the indictment.
The sheriff’s office also said it had digital evidence that Sayed’s cell phone was near Hood’s home at the time she was shot.
Last weekThe sheriff’s office said Sayed was caught in Dubai by the Dubai Police Department, UAE Interpol and the U.S. Marshals Service. He was brought back to the U.S. and is being held without a subscription at the Laudan County Isolation Center.
Sayed’s lawyer is expected to defend his case in Laudan County Court on Tuesday.
Sayed is charged with first-degree murder, entering a house with intent to commit murder, shooting while committing murder, and three counts of charges of using firearms while committing a crime.
While Sayed was on the run, 54-year-old Abdul Wahid from Lisburg was accused of aiding and abetting the murder. The Laudan County Attorney’s Office alleges that Wahid drove Saeed to and from Hood’s house.
Earlier, the sheriff’s office said that there was a connection between the suspects and the victim, but did not specify.
