A professional MMA fighter faces serious charges after allegedly killing a doctor following a debate over COVID-19 vaccinations.
According to several reports from Guam, including the Pacific Daily News, Akmal Khozhiev has been charged with aggravated murder and aggravated assault for allegedly stabbing 44-year-old doctor Miran Rabati.
According to reports, Guam police responded to a complaint of unrest in Tamuning, where officers spotted Khoziev covered in blood, saying, “I killed him.” The 3-1 professional fighter was taken into custody before police on the scene discovered Rabati’s body “lying face down in a pool of blood”. Rabati was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to eyewitness testimony obtained by the Pacific Daily News, the pair were in the apartment complex where the incident took place, having dinner before the dispute over vaccinations began. Khozhiev then suffocated Rabati from behind and two women attempted to overpower the 27-year-old, one of whom was shot in the head, according to documents obtained in the report.
Khozhiev allegedly found an animal bone and started stabbing the victim, who then attempted to leave the compound before being repeatedly stabbed with a knife in the neck.
The bond was set at $ 1 million when he first appeared in court last Wednesday.
