The Dollar Bay man arrested after an alleged domestic assault that turned fatal was in court on Friday morning.
Thirty-four-year-old Nima Nassiri was in Houghton County District Court on Friday, facing second degree murder charges in regards to the death of 27-year-old Senaz Nezami. Nezami died at Marquette General Hospital on December 12 from injuries she received during the alleged assault.
In court, Nassiri waived his right to a preliminary hearing in 14 days and was taken back to the Houghton County Jail on a $5 million bond.
He is expected to be back in court on January 13 at 10 a.m. for a preliminary hearing.
