Nancy Ajram's Husband Has Been Charged With Murder

Nancy Ajram's husband as been charged with 'intentional' murder, per reports by Lebanese news outlet National News Agency.

On January 5, the singer's husband, Dr Al Hashem, shot dead a man who broke into their family home at around dawn, reportedly threatening the couple and their two young children. Al Hashem was initially detained by Lebanese authorities, but was then later released following a round of questioning by a judge. As the case developed, he was subsequently referred to the first investigative judge for Mount Lebanon. 

In a statement released by the news agency on Wednesday, "The public in Mount Lebanon, Judge Ghada Aoun, called on the husband of pop star Nancy Ajram, Dr Fadi Al Hashem, for a full investigation," per The National.

The case was initially treated as an act of self-defence amidst an attempted burglary.

The family of the alleged thief, 30-year-old Mohammed Hassan Al Moussa, have since called for more investigations, following claims that their son had previously worked for Nancy Ajram, and was a well known figure to both the Lebanese singer and her husband. 

Dr Al Hashem is yet to be given a court hearing or possible sentencing.
