The Jewish Journal reports on today's arraignment of Khaled Awad on charges he repeatedly stabbed a rabbi outside a Jewish day school and camp in Brighton Center yesterday.
A judge ordered Awad, who moved to the US from Egypt four years ago, locked up at least until a dangerousness hearing; he'd had unspecified charges in Florida dismissed due to questions about his mental competence.
Among those attending a vigil in the park where Rabbi Shlomo Noginski was stabbed was Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins, who said her office is still considering whether to add civil-rights charges to the assault-and-battery charges Awad is already facing, WBUR reports.
Members of the Jewish communities in Boston, Brookline and Newton and numerous elected officials attended the vigil. Also in attendance: Staffers from the German consulate in Boston:
