Laken Riley: Venezuelan Suspect Accused of Killing Georgia Nurse

A Venezuelan man named Jose Ibarra, who is undocumented, has been charged with the murder of 22-year-old Georgia nursing student Laken Riley. The grand jury in Georgia filed 10 charges against him, including murder, attempted rape, and spying on another student. Ms. Riley was killed while jogging at the University of Georgia in February. The jury found that she died from blunt force trauma and asphyxiation after Mr. Ibarra hit her with a rock. President Biden referred to her case in his State of the Union speech, sparking debates around immigration laws. The community was shaken by Ms. Riley’s murder and conservatives used it to advocate for tougher immigration laws.
