Minneapolis man charged in UW-Stout student’s death

A 24-year-old Saudi student died in an October 30 incident in Menomonie, Wisconsin. Today, a Minneapolis man was charged with murder and battery.

Andy Mannix of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Alnahdi’s death stirred international controversy, in part due to suspicions that his being from Saudi Arabia motivated his alleged attacker, 27-year-old Cullen Osburn. Within days of the killing, the Consulate of Saudi Arabia appointed a lawyer and dispatched its head of legal affairs to help monitor the case and handle legal concerns.

Osburn, however, was adamant in telling investigators that the fight “was not a result of anybody’s race,” according to the criminal complaint, and the charges and witness accounts make no reference to racial bias.
