Two Arab brothers, aged 18 and 23, have stood trial in Sharjah on charges of premeditated murder. They are the suspects of throwing a 65-year-old man off their SUV and running him over, unfortunately killing the victim on the spot.
The Sharjah Appeals Court recently heard the murder case, which reportedly happened in July last year. The man ran a smoking supplies store and on the day of the incident, the brothers went into the store.
The brothers stole the man’s money from his store, promoting the latter to run after them. The man was able to get in their SUV, which was driven by one of the suspects. As they sped off, they reportedly threw the man off the vehicle and ran the man over.
Besides being on trial for murder, the brothers also are on trial for theft, violating traffic rules and failure to report the incident to the police.
The public prosecution also accused the suspects of illegally replacing their SUV’s license plate with another license plate from another vehicle.
