The News & Observer in Raleigh is reporting Nevine Aly Elshiekh, a Morrisville teacher allegedly involved in a murder for hire plot and who was being held without bail in the New Hanover County Detention Center, will be released to her 80-year-old father next week.
Prosecutors allege Elshiekh was the go-between for
Hysen Sherifi, a convicted terrorist giving her instructions to hire a hit man to behead former witnesses in his case. Sherifi was being housed in the New Hanover jail, and prosecutors say meetings about a hit man took place in Wilmington.
Judge Will Britt oversaw Elshiekh’s appeal hearing in Raleigh Thursday. He overruled Judge Robert Jones’ former decision not to grant a release for Elshiekh. But there are special conditions for her release and bond is set at $1 million.
