Slain man's sister says life threatened
Somali-Canadian man shot at River Cree Casino in 2008
Muna Ibrahim, 25, told the CBC that one of the accused threatened her life at the preliminary trial in June.
Mohamed Ibrahim, 24, was shot in the back of the head in the parking lot of the River Cree Casino in Aug. 30, 2008.
Alexander Reid and Adam Brown are accused of second-degree murder.
"I think about it a lot," said Ibrahim, a Toronto health-care worker. "I've let the proper authorities know about it. So I just I hope — have faith in the legal system that they will do something about these threats."
Last week, a witness to the killing told the CBC she was threatened with death if she testified.
Community members said they’re worried intimidation might undermine the trial — the first in a string of murder cases involving young Somali-Canadian men to make it to court.
More than 20 Somali-Canadian men have been killed in Alberta in three years.
