Nazareth Ilit man to be charged with girlfriend's murder

A 58-year-old man is to be charged with murder after setting fire to his girlfriend as she sat in their car, according to an indictment filed in the Nazareth District Court on Thursday.
Nashad Basul, originally from Reineh, is also charged with false imprisonment after allegedly forcing the victim, Natalia Nariman, to remain locked inside their Nazareth Ilit apartment for years.
According to the indictment, Nariman met Basul in 1993 after she made aliya from Uzbekistan. She converted to Islam, and the couple lived in Nazareth Ilit with their baby daughter and Nariman's son from a previous relationship.
