Suspect in killing of religious leader in NYC charged with murder

NEW YORK (WIAT) — The man suspected of killing a religious leader and his friend in New York City has now been charged with murder. Police said Oscar Morel is charged with two counts of second-degree murder.

On Monday, the outraged Muslim community turned out in large numbers to pay their respects to the imam.

Though police say the motive is still unclear, some mourners say they’re sure the violence was the result of a hate crime.
