TULSA, Okla. — An Oklahoma man suspected of fatally shooting a male neighbor was accused of harassing and shouting anti-Muslim slurs at the man's family, who are actually Christians from Lebanon, and of trying to run over the man's mother with his vehicle.
Police say Khalid Jabara was killed at his Tulsa home Friday and 61-year-old Stanley Majors is being held without bail on a first-degree murder complaint and possession of a firearm after a felony conviction, but online court records do not show that he has been formally charged. It was not clear if Majors has an attorney to speak on his behalf.
Jabara's family issued a statement saying Majors had called the family "dirty Arabs," ''filthy Lebanese," ''Aye-rabs," and "Mooslems."
Prosecutors had charged Majors with injuring Jabara's mother, Haifa, in September by driving his vehicle into her. According to court records, Majors was charged with assault and battery with a deadly weapon, leaving the scene of a collision involving injury, violating a protective order and public intoxication. Prosecutors tried to keep Majors in jail on the assault charge, but he was released after posting bond on May 25.
Majors' attorney in that case did not immediately return a phone call for comment after business hours on Tuesday.
