Didn’t think so. The story didn’t make it past the local New York/New Jersey media, which is Donald Trump’s point about all the Muslim terrorist attacks that don’t get national media attention.
Hudson County View (h/t CreepingSharia) Yusuf Ibrahim (above), 31, an Egyptian Muslim immigrant from Jersey City, was sentenced by Hudson County Superior Court Judge Mitzy Galis-Menendez to two consecutive life terms in state prison.
The Jersey City Muslim received two consecutive life sentences for shooting two men to death, cutting off their heads and hands and burying them in a wooded area in Atlantic County, state Attorney General Christopher Porrino said. Ibrahim murdered Hany Tawadros, 25, and Amgad Konds, 27, (below) in the early morning hours of February 5, 2013. Tawadros and Konds were Egyptian Christian nationals who were living in Jersey City.
He was sentenced to an additional 48 years, to be served concurrently, on charges including desecration of human remains, theft, unlawful possession of a weapon, and hindering apprehension, officials said. The sentence also includes 127.5 years of parole ineligibility.
Ibrahim was found guilty on June 22 by a Hudson County jury of two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of second-degree desecration of human remains, and other crimes related to the murders and mutilation of the bodies. (Looks like he brought a Muslim tradition with him when he left Egypt)
Ibrahim shot each man once in the chest with a .38-caliber handgun inside Konds’ white Mercedes C280 before driving the bodies of the deceased victims to Buena Vista in the Mercedes. There he disposed of their remains in a wooded area behind the unoccupied home of a relative, after stealing the victims’ money and jewelry.
Before burying the victims, in order to hinder their identification, he cut off their heads and hands using a small drywall saw and scissors, and knocked out their teeth with a tire iron.
