MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – A man wanted in the case of a murder at a Miami high rise appeared in a South Florida courtroom this weekend.
The suspect, 24-year-old Haider Rana, faced a judge on Saturday after being accused of fatally shooting a woman in May of last year.
Rana is charged with second-degree murder, but his attorney’s claim he acted in self-defense, alleging the victim was the aggressor.
Maame Adwoa Amuah, 25, was found shot on the seventh floor of a condo building along Northwest 1st Avenue and 6th Street at approximately 1:20 a.m. on May 5.
She was taken to the hospital in critical condition, but died from her injuries soon after.
Lawyers said the victim called Rana 19 times before she went to his apartment.
Rana was watching a movie with another woman when attorneys say Amuah knocked on the door and tried to barge in, which is when she was shot.
A detective will be brought in to testify to determine if Rana should get bond.
