Assault victim dies

HOUGHTON – The Dollar Bay woman who was taken to the hospital following a report of a domestic violence assault has died.

The Houghton County Sherif’s office announced today that Senaz Nezami, 27, died at Marquette General Hospital on Dec. 12 as a result of injuries sustained in a domestic violence assault on Dec. 8.

Her husband, Nima Nassiri, 34, remains lodged at Houghton County Jail and was initially charged in the attack with assault to do great bodily harm less than murder.

His bond was sent at $5 million.

Nassiri and Nezami had recently moved to Dollar Bay, and Nezami had enrolled at Michigan Technological University to attend the winter term.

The sheriff’s office states that they will be submitting supplemental information to the Houghton County Prosecutor’s office seeking additional charges against Nassiri.
