Murder charges filed in killing of Saudi Arabian UW-Stout student

Hussain Saeed Alnahdi died after being found unconscious outside of a pizza place in Menomonie.

A Minnesota man is now charged with murder in the death of a Saudi Arabian Wisconsin college student.

Hussain Saeed Alnahdi, 24, was studying business administration at the University of Wisconsin-Stout. He was found unconscious outside of a pizza place in Menomonie over Halloween weekend, with witnesses saying there was a fight between he and someone else.

Alnahdi died the next day, leading to reward offers and pleas for help from authorities.

A few weeks later, Menomonie police said they arrested a suspect.

It wasn't until this week however that any charges were filed.

Cullen Osburn, a Minneapolis man, was charged Thursday with felony murder and aggravated battery, according to Wisconsin court records.

An arrested warrant was issued Friday for the 27-year-old.

The Leader-Telegram has details from the charges – witness accounts have slightly different details, but Osburn was seen punching Alnahdi in the face or head; some say Alnahdi had ripped Osburn's chain off his neck.

Osburn will need to be extradited, the paper says.

Authorities had said they were initially investigating it as a possible hate crime, but at the time of the November arrest, added they'd found no evidence the killing was motivated by race.
