A northern Virginia man accused of killing a Muslim teen as she walked back to her mosque is scheduled to be back in court, where he faces charges that could bring the death penalty


FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) -- A northern Virginia man accused of killing a Muslim teen as she walked back to her mosque was back in court to face charges that could bring the death penalty.

The June slaying of 17-year-old Nabra Hassanen of Reston rattled the region's Muslim community. She was attacked as she walked to a mosque with a group of friends for pre-dawn Ramadan services.

On Monday, a grand jury in Fairfax County indicted Darwin Martinez-Torres of Sterling on charges including capital murder and rape in Hassanen's death. He made a brief appearance at the Fairfax County courthouse Thursday for what is known as term day, to set the schedule for future hearings following his indictment.
