Omaha man to face murder trial in March double killing

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — An Omaha man accused of fatally shooting two men in March has been ordered to stand trial on two first-degree murder and other counts.

On Monday, a judge bound the case against Mabior Mabior, 24, over to trial court, the Omaha World-Herald reported.

Mabior is charged with the murder counts and two weapons counts in the early-morning March 27 shooting deaths of 27-year-old Loklok Thok and 24-year-old Duop Tang Deng. Thok died at the scene, and Deng died later at a hospital.

Omaha Police Detective Mike Young testified Monday that surveillance video from a nearby school showed a man police identified as Mabior shooting Thok and Deng on the street before bending over them and rifling through their pockets. Young also testified that police stopped a car later on the day of the shooting in which they found Mabior and a magazine from a 9 mm handgun. The stamp on the bullets in the magazine matched the eight shell casings found at the scene of the shooting, Young said.

Mabior is being held without bail as he awaits trial.
