Dollar Bay woman dies after domestic assault

DOLLAR BAY – The Houghton County Sheriff’s Office has reported that Senaz Nezami, 27, of Dollar Bay, passed away Thursday at Marquette General Hospital as a result of injuries sustained in a domestic violence assault on Dec. 8.

Her husband, Nima Nassiri, 34, is still lodged at the Houghton County Jail and was initially charged in the attack with assault to do great bodily harm less than murder. His bond was set at $5 million dollars.

Nassiri and Nezami had recently moved to Dollar Bat and Nezami had enrolled at MTU to attend the winter term.

The Sheriff’s Office states that they will be submitting supplemental information to the Houghton County Prosecutor’s Office seeking additional charges.
