According to Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman, one of the 20-year-old suspects, Naadir Abdul-Ali, was a jilted boyfriend of the victim’s 18-year-old daughter.

“He told her he wanted another chance. She refused. He told her if we can’t be together someone’s got to go. Those were his words,” said Ferman.
