Shaima Alawadi's Husband Booked on First Degree Murder Charges

UT San-Diego:

El Cajon police are expected this afternoon to announce an update in the investigation of the beating death of an Iraqi woman who was attacked in her home eight months ago.

Jail records show the woman’s husband, Kassim Alhimidi, 48, was booked into jail Thursday evening by El Cajon police on one count of first degree murder. He is being held without bail.

Police have scheduled a news conference for 1 p.m.

Alhimidi’s wife, Shaima Alawadi, 32, was found unconscious in the family’s Skyview Street home March 21. She was struck on the head at least six times and suffered four skull fractures, according to court records. She died in a hospital three days later.

*CAIR released statement saying, "He would have gotten away with it too with our help had it not been for those meddling kids." As you might recall that CAIR was instrumental in giving the killer cover by pushing the narrative that Shaima's murder was an act of Anti Muslim hate against innocent Muslims, not an Honor Killing.

At an Islamic memorial service in Lakeside before leaving for Iraq, Alhimidi pleaded with the public for help finding his wife's killer. Weeping uncontrollably, he threw himself on his wife's linen shroud, which was covered with red roses.
