Police: Rape Suspect Released from Jail Amid Pandemic Killed Accuser

Must Read


A Virginia man, accused of rape, is now being accused of killing his accuser after he was released from jail due to concerns of the coronavirus, according to police.

The Washington Post first reported that rape suspect Ibrahim E. Bouaichi shot and killed the woman who accused him of rape in late July. He was released from jail on April 9, according to the newspaper and Alexandria police.

Last year, Bouaichi was indicted on charges that included rape, strangulation and abduction. The woman, whom police identified as Karla Elizabeth Dominguez Gonzalez, testified against him in Alexandria District Court in December, the newspaper reports. 

He was jailed without bond in Alexandria until the coronavirus outbreak. His lawyers argued for his release. He was let go on a $25,000 bond over the objections of a prosecutor.

The newspaper reports that Circuit Court Judge Nolan Dawkins released Bouaichi on the condition that he only leave his Maryland home to meet with his lawyers or pretrial services officials.

He is accused of killing Gonzalez on July 29. On Tuesday, police issued a statement saying they were looking for Bouaichi, whom they described as armed and dangerous.

On Wednesday, federal marshals and Alexandria police spotted and pursued Bouaichi in Prince George’s County, where he crashed his vehicle and apparently shot himself, according to WaPo.

On Thursday, he was listed in critical condition. 


Bouaichi’s attorneys, Manuel Leiva and Frank Salvato, said in a statement that they were “certainly saddened by the tragedy both families have suffered here.” The lawyers said they “were looking forward to trial. Unfortunately, the pandemic continued the trial date by several months and we didn’t get the chance to put forth our case.”
