A jury has convicted Nima Nassiri of second-degree murder in the death of his wife Sanaz Nezami who moved from Iran to pursue an advanced degree at Michigan Technological University. 911: What location is your emergency?” “Hi, it’s an emergency call because my husband got so crazy,” Sanaz Nezami said.
Those were some of the final words of Sanaz Nezami. The prosecutor said the cause of death was pounding her head on the floor, and he knew pounding her head on the floor like that could cause serious injury and that’s what’s necessary to convict him of second degree murder. The jury ended up convicting Nima Nassiri of second-degree murder. He’ll be sentenced in 30 days, which would be on Friday, October 17th. Nassiri could spend the rest of his life in prison.
