The heinous murder of the Muslim child is making headlines around the world as an alleged hate crime tied to the unrest in the Middle East. Since the attack last Saturday, the Chicago-area community has been mourning.

Court documents say 71-year-old Joseph Czuba expressed to his wife that he wanted Hanan Shaheen and her son to move out of his residence because he believed he and his wife were in danger, and that Hanan was going to call her Palestinian family and friends to harm the couple.
