      Police: Woman dies after domestic assault

      Nima Nassiri

      A Dollar Bay woman has died according to the Houghton County Sheriff's Office.

      Twenty-seven-year-old Senaz Nezami died on December 12 as a result of the injuries she sustained in a domestic violence assault, from her husband, on December 8.

      Nima Nassiri, age 34, remains lodged in the Houghton County Jail on a bond of $5 million.

      On December 9, Nassiri was charged with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder.

      The Houghton County Sheriff's Office said they will be submitting more information to the Houghton County Prosecutor's Office for additional charges against Nassiri.

      The sheriff's office said Nassiri recently moved to Dollar Bay and his wife enrolled at Michigan Technological University to attend the winter term.
