Friday, the 54-year-old man who killed Bahaa’s father by suffocating him has been charged with premeditated murder, the Public Prosecutor announced. 

Additionally, he was charged with attempted murder for trying to kill the 16-year-old boy, Bahaa, as he attacked him with an axe while he was sleeping.

A source close to the investigation said that the murderer confessed that he killed Bahaa's father due to financial disputes between them. 

The perpetrator used a rope to kill Bahaa's father and after he killed him he burried him in an empty land in Naur, Amman. The source added that he also confessed that he attacked Bahaa.

Bahaa was living with his father, while his mother is currently in the West Bank.
