According to reports, the man who brutally murdered Aniah Blanchard is set to stand trial and will face the death penalty for his heinous crime committed against the young woman. Prosecutors argued Tuesday that Ibrahim Yazeed should be sentenced to death following confirmation that he had been charged with capital murder.
Lee County ‘s DA confirmed on Tuesday that the death penalty would be sought swiftly to seek justice for Blanchard. DA Brandon Hughes released the following statement.
“It is my intention that the response to this horrific crime serves as a warning,” Hughes said. “To anyone who believes they want to come to Lee County and engage in violent criminal behaviour, you will certainly be dealt with, and the consequences will be severe.”
