RAPIDES PARISH, La. (KALB) - Mohammed Abudayeh, 30 of Alexandria, the man arrested in March for allegedly attempting to hire a man to attack his girlfriend to kill their unborn child, then later arrested for allegedly buying SNAP benefits from individuals at a store in which he worked, is asking for a bond reduction.

Abudayeh is charged with attempted first-degree feticide and criminal conspiracy to commit feticide for the first case. He's charged with racketeering, money laundering, bank fraud, computer fraud, and unauthorized use of food stamps for the second case.

His attorney, John Flynn, filed a motion to reduce his bond. In that motion, Flynn writes that, "the offenses charged are serious in nature, but the weight of the evidence against the defendant is not great."

Flynn goes on to say that Abudayeh "would not pose a serious danger to any person or community" if released. He also says that his client has never been convicted of a felony before.

The motion will be heard before Judge Mary Doggett on May 6. The case is being prosecuted by Cheryl Carter.
