New details revealed in death of UFC fighter's stepdaughter
OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama police detective revealed new details in the capital murder case against a man accused of kidnapping and killing the stepdaughter of a UFC fighter.
News outlets report the detective testified Wednesday that 19-year-old Aniah Blanchard drove Ibraheem Yazeed to a gas station in Lee County last October. Yazeed's attorney said Blanchard willingly let Yazeed into her car and there was no proof of a kidnapping.
The district attorney said Yazeed had ill intent when he gave Blanchard a fake name and that she was lured under false pretenses. The judge found probable cause to bond the case over to a grand jury.
