Federal prosecutors say a Maryland restaurant owner was under pressure, facing an impending divorce and financial ruin.
His solution, they say, was to burn down his restaurant for insurance money, and implicate his soon-to-be ex-wife as a terrorist.
In a federal criminal charge the capital announced on Monday, he said he was worried that Halil Ahmed, 51, was under the pressure of the lenders and that he would have to make a big divorce deal. He argued about killing him, but he decided to pay a bellicide to frame him with a ballistic vest, firearms, alcohol and extreme jihad writings. Ahmed planned to arrest his restaurant after he was burned. “Protected by God.”
Ahmad is charged with state and federal counts. The newspaper could not get a comment on his behalf.
