The killer had previously threatened his victim to stop selling alcohol or face possible death.

The accident occurred after the defendant pulled out a knife he was hiding and stabbed his victim to death.

The defendant conceived that his act was based on a number of fatwas issued by extremist clerics, who order the killing of alcohol sellers.

The killer was bristle on his stance that the Coptic man deserved to be killed for selling alcohol.

He added that he is proud of committing such crime.
