LOUISVILLE (AP) - A Kentucky prosecutor says a grand jury will hear the case of a man held in the shootings of two neighbors at a homeowners association meeting.
Jefferson County Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Leland Hulbert told The Associated Press on Monday that 55-year-old Mahmoud Yousef Hindi could face the death sentence if he is charged with both deaths and convicted.
Hindi, a doctor educated in Jordan, was arrested after the shooting Thursday night and charged with murder in the death of 73-year-old David Merritt, who died at the scene. Hindi pleaded not guilty Saturday to that charge as well as assault and wanton endangerment. Bond was set at $1 million.
The second man, 69-year-old Marvin Fisher, died Sunday.
Hulbert said the case will go before a panel within a couple of weeks.
Police say Hindi had a history of disputes with the homeowners group about a fence and driveway in the upscale neighborhood.
