A man arrested a year ago for murder will not go to trial following the dismissal of charges by District Judge Jon Sullivan.

A man who was charged in the murder of a Carl Albert State College student 29 years ago will not go to trial after charges were dismissed.
Suhail Mohammad Shanti, 48, of Jordan, was arrested 16 months ago as the suspect in a 29 year old murder case. He was accused of killing Mohamed Ayman Al-Zein, an international student at CASC.
According to LeFlore County District Attorney Jeff Smith, the case was dismissed on request of the state. Smith listed the death of witnesses, the degradation of blood evidence and witnesses who could not be located as reasons for the dismissal.
Shanti will not be released from jail due to a detainer filed by the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.
