HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — The man accused of fatally shooting his teen daughter and niece in Henrico County back in December has been indicted on capital murder charges.
Sources told 8News that a jury recently indicted Abdool Z. Zaman on two capital murder charges in relation to the deaths of his 18-year-old daughter, Vanessa Zaman, and niece, Leona Samlall, who were both gunned down at a Highland Springs apartment complex on December 13. The medical examiner later ruled both girls died from gunshot wounds to the head.
A. Zaman will be arraigned on those upgraded charges in court Tuesday morning.
Zaman was previously arraigned on two first-degree murder charges after he was extradited to Virginia from New York, where he was captured.
