January 06, 2010 - Charges have been filed against two suspects arrested in the fatal stabbing of a woman at 6061 Beverly Hill #76 about 8:20 a.m. on Nov. 25, 2009.

The suspects, Danish Moazzam Minhas (A/m, DOB: 8-25-92) and Nur J. Mohamed (b/m, DOB: 12-22-91), are charged with capital murder in the 338th State District Court.

The victim, Tabassum Khan, 43, of the above address, suffered multiple stab wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant B. Harris and Police Officer R. Houghton reported:

The son of Ms. Khan, Danish Moazzam Minhas, returned home the morning of Nov. 25 from a rare night out alone to find the door open and his mother dead.

Further investigation determined that Minhas had hired a fellow high school classmate, Nur J. Mohamed, to kill his mother. Both suspects have confessed to their roles in the killing. Minhas told investigators he wanted his mother dead because she was too strict and controlling. Mohamed told police Minhas paid him to kill Ms. Tabassum.

At 1:30 p.m. TODAY (Wed, Jan 6), a homicide investigator will be available in the media briefing room of HPD Headquarters at 1200 Travis to answer questions concerning this case.
