Jury indicts man in killing
HILO » A Big Island grand jury has indicted Marwan Timothy Saad Jackson, 24, for murder and related crimes in the death of his girlfriend Sarah Fay on Nov. 25 at a rural home south of Hilo.
Fay, 24, was left "brain dead" by Jackson's attack, according to a police report.
Fay was kept on life support until her baby boy could be born by Caesarean delivery on Dec. 12. The child, named Josiah Darcy Fay, was placed in the care of his aunt and uncle, Michael and Carie Fay of Denver.
Wednesday's indictment supersedes an earlier criminal complaint against Jackson.
Besides second-degree murder, Jackson is charged with sexual assault, kidnapping and violation of a protective order to stay away from Fay. An earlier charged of robbery connected to stealing Fay's car was dropped.
A date for arraignment was not immediately set. Jackson had been ordered held without bail.
Jackson had been free on probation at the time of the alleged attack on Fay. A hearing was scheduled for today to revoke his probation regarding three previous assault cases, including one in which a police officer's arm became entangled in Jackson's car and Jackson dragged him some distance with the car before the officer was able to free himself.
