Mother murdered by masked men amid divorce with abusive ex-husband – Crime Watch Daily Updates

In this episode of Crime Watch Daily Updates: The case of Ariet Girgis, a devoted mother of two with a controlling husband who broke her nose when she asked him to take her out to dinner. Her husband, Magdi Girgis, was arrested and charged with domestic violence.

After breaking her nose, Ariet obtained a restraining order against her husband, and he was ordered to move out of their home in Westminster, California. She also planned on divorcing him.

On September 29, 2004, two masked men went into Ariet’s home. They tied up one of her sons and pushed him in a closet. Then, they went after Ariet. She was stabbed to the point of near decapitation.

Nearly nine years would go by before Ariet and her sons would see justice. Westminster Police arrested Magdi on February 1, 2013, on suspicion of murder. He was later convicted of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, and received sentencing enhancements for murder for financial gain and murder to prevent testimony. A judge sentenced him to life in prison without parole in 2014.

Then, investigators got a DNA hit on a second suspect – a man named Anthony Bridget. He was arrested a few months after Magdi, and in 2018, was convicted of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, aggravated assault, and false imprisonment by violence. He also received a special enhancement of murder for financial gain and lying in wait. In October 2018, he was sentenced to life in prison without parole.
