Judge Rules Craig Hicks, The Violent Leftist Charged With Killing 3 Muslims, Can Face Death Penalty Trial

The North Carolina man charged with killing three young Muslims will face a death penalty trial, a judge ruled Monday.

Craig Hicks, 46, is charged with the Feb. 10 killings of Deah Barakat, 23; his wife, Yusor Abu-Salha, 21; and her sister, Razan Abu-Salha, 19, at a Chapel Hill apartment complex near the University of North Carolina.

After prosecutors detailed the shootings during a preliminary hearing, Superior Court Judge Orlando Hudson Jr. ruled that Hicks was “death penalty qualified.”
