Domestic violence suspect arraigned on second degree murder charges

The Dollar Bay man who was involved in a domestic assault that turned deadly was in Houghton County District Court this morning.

34-year-old Nima Nassiri was arraigned on charges of second degree murder for his alleged assault on his wife, 27-year-old Senaz Nezami. Nezami died from the severity of her injuries at Marquette General Hospital last Thursday, just a few days after the incident.

A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Nassiri on January 13th. Nassiri remains lodged in the Houghton County jail on a $5 million bond.
