Laken Riley murder suspect indicted on 10 counts

by ian

The suspect in the February slaying of  Georgia nursing student Laken Riley was charged with her murder yesterday.

That suspect is Jose Antonio Ibarra, an illegal immigrant from Venezuela. He is facing 10 counts, including murder, attempted rape, kidnapping and aggravated battery. Ibarra is also accused of “peeping Tom” behavior for peering through a window and spying on a staff member of the University of Georgia- the same day he is accused of murdering Riley.

The suspect’s status as an illegal immigrant catapulted the murder to a national level as conservative lawmakers directly attributed Riley’s death to President Joe Biden’s failed border policies.
