The Muslim who beat and bit her niece to death wants her Quran. It's interesting to me. What murderer, let alone child killer, immediately upon their arrest, asks for a Bible?
Accused child killer Nour Hadid asked for a Quran in jail and was provided with one Friday, according to her new attorney, Joel Brodsky.
"Nour had only one request Friday and that was that she be brought an Arabic-language Quran, which the Cook County sheriff's officers have given her," Brodsky said. "Both she and her husband are modest and devout Muslims."
Hadid, 26, is accused of killing her 2-year-old niece, Bhia, by beating and biting her to death over a four-day period ending Sunday.
Police say she gave a video-taped confession to killing the child at her Orland Park home.
But her husband, Alaeddin Hadid, says police humiliated her by forcing her to remove her headscarf for a booking photo, which he said was an insult against the couple's Muslim faith.
