LENOX TOWNSHIP (AP) – A Jordanian man sentenced to one year’s probation for starting a backyard fire that killed his 6-year-old daughter in suburban Detroit has been deported.
Defense lawyer Richard Graving told The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens that Majd Al-Shara boarded an airplane at Detroit Metropolitan Airport in Romulus on Tuesday, and was bound for Jordan.
Graving has said Al-Shara didn’t have a valid visa to be in the U.S.
He says he was trying to stoke a fire in a backyard fire pit with fuel when flames shot out and burned Aliaa. Al-Shara also was burned.
