      Man accused of murdering his wife appears in court

      The Dollar Bay man facing murder charges in the death of his wife appeared in Houghton County District Court Monday morning for his preliminary hearing.

      Nima Nassiri is charged with second degree murder after an alleged domestic violence case turned fatal in December. His wife, Senaz Nezami, died in the hospital on December 12 as a result of her injuries.

      Thirty-four-year-old Nassiri waived his case up to circuit court on Monday morning. He is scheduled to appear for his circuit court arraignment January 15 at 1 p.m. Nassiri is still lodged at the Houghton County Jail on a $5 million bond.
