    Funeral held for Clayton toddler found dead at New Mexico compound

    In his very first moments of life, Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj struggled. Oxygen was slow getting to his brain, causing damage that would hamper his brief life. He had seizures and developmental delays and had to take medicine.

    On Thursday, family and well-wishers gathered at Atlanta Masjid of Al-Islam to recall a hard life that ended after only about three and a half years.

    Prosecutors in New Mexico believe the boy died after he allegedly hadn’t been given his medication by his father, a 40-year-old Atlanta man who believed he could pray the conditions away.

    The father, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, is accused of taking his son without the mother’s permission to a rural compound in New Mexico.

    New charges filed against New Mexico compound suspects

    <snip>

    Jany Leveille, 35, and her husband Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40, were charged with abuse of a child resulting in death, as well as conspiracy to commit abuse of a child, both of which are first degree felonies that carry potential life sentences, Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe said in a statement.

    The two previously only faced charges for child abuse that did not result in death or bodily harm, a third-degree felony.

    “We now know the child died on December 24, 2017 and was concealed at the compound,” Hogrefe said in the statement.

    Children on New Mexico compound were forced to wash body of dead boy as punishment, prosecutors say

    The son of a prominent Brooklyn imam forced starving children on a filthy New Mexico compound to wash the body of their dead brother as a punishment, among other weird rituals and beliefs he enforced, according to prosecutors.

    Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40, whose father Imam Siraj Wahhaj — who the feds have called an unindicted co-conspirator to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing — ran a cult-like training camp where he carried on polygamous relationships, starved 11 children and held healing ceremonies on a sickly 3-old-boy, Abdul Ghani, which prosecutors charge ultimately lead to the boy’s death.

    Charges dismissed against 3 in New Mexico compound case

    Judge Emilio Chavez ruled that he could not keep the three in custody because prosecutors missed a 10-day limit for an evidentiary hearing to establish probable cause for the neglect charges.

    Prosecutors could still seek charges for the three — Lucas Morton, Subhannah Wahhaj and Hujrah Wahha — by asking a grand jury to indict them but offered no immediate indication on how they would proceed.

    Why isn't the body of a child evidence? Can NM not read a calendar?

    3 From New Mexico Compound Could Be Freed as Charges Tossed
    A judge has dismissed child neglect charges against three people from a New Mexico desert compound where 11 children were found in filth and the body of a 3-year-old boy was discovered.
    Aug. 29, 2018, at 3:58 p.m.

    <snip>

    Prosecutors have other options for pursuing charges against the three — Lucas Morton, Subhannah Wahhaj and Hujrah Wahhaj. That could include refiling the charges or asking a grand jury to indict them.

    Prosecutors had pressed to keep them behind bars and planned to present new evidence of an anti-government plot and talk of jihad and martyrdom among some members of the extended Muslim family that settled at the compound last winter.

    [......]
    Authorities are pushing ahead with other charges against the dead boy's father, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, and his partner, Jany Leveille.

    They were due in court Wednesday on charges of child abuse resulting in death, which could carry life sentences in connection with the death of Abdul-ghani Wahhaj. The severely disabled boy's badly decomposed remains were found this month inside a tunnel at the high-desert compound near the Colorado state line.

    FBI arrests five New Mexico compound suspects days after multiple charges were dropped
    By Matt Richardson

    The FBI announced Friday that it had arrested all five New Mexico compound suspects, days after multiple charges were dropped. The suspects were now being charged with violating federal firearms and conspiracy laws.

    The announcement comes after local prosecutors dropped charges in the death of a 3-year-old boy at the compound site. Taos County District Attorney Donald Gallegos said Friday his office would now seek grand jury indictments involving the death. Gallegos said seeking indictments would allow more time to gather evidence.

    "The defendants, Jany Leveille, 35, a Haitian national illegally present in the United States, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40, Hujrah Wahhaj, 37, Subhanah Wahhaj, 35, and Lucas Morton, 40, are charged in a criminal complaint that was filed earlier today in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico," the bureau said in a statement.

    The Latest: New Mexico compound residents appear in court
    Updated 10:31 am PDT, Tuesday, September 4, 2018

    Five former residents of a ramshackle compound in northern New Mexico where a 3-year-old boy's body was found last month have made their first appearance in federal court on firearms-related charges.

    Tuesday's court hearing in Albuquerque focused on allegations against Jany Leveille of illegal possession of firearms and ammunition linked to her unlawful immigration status and conspiracy accusations against the four other defendants.

    The judge scheduled a detention hearing for Leveille and the others on Wednesday.

    The compound was in fact a terrorist training camp and that at least one of the suspects was here illegally with an arsenal.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Federal Grand Jury Indicts Amalia Compound Defendants on Firearms and Conspiracy Charges


    ALBUQUERQUE – A federal grand jury sitting in Albuquerque, N.M., has indicted Jany Leveille, 35, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40, Hujrah Wahhaj, 37, Subhanah Wahhaj, 35, and Lucas Morton, 40, on firearms and conspiracy charges, announced U.S. Attorney John C. Anderson and Special Agent in Charge James C. Langenberg of the FBI’s Albuquerque Division.

    The indictment, which was filed this afternoon, charges the five defendants, residents of a compound in Amalia, in Taos County, N.M., with conspiring knowingly to provide an alien illegally and unlawfully in the United States, possession of firearms and ammunition. The indictment also charges Leveille, a Haitian national illegally and unlawfully in the United States, with possession of firearms and ammunition.

    The conspiracy charge alleges that the defendants conspired to provide Leveille, an alien unlawfully in the United States, with firearms and ammunition from at least Nov. 2017 through Aug. 2018. The indictment alleges that, as part of the conspiracy, the defendants transported firearms and ammunition from Georgia to New Mexico in Dec. 2017. The indictment further alleges that, between Dec. 2017 and Aug. 2018, the defendants established a training camp and firing range in Taos County, where they stored firearms and ammunition and engaged in firearms and tactical training as part of their common plan to prepare for violent attacks on government, military, educational, and financial institutions.

    Federal Judge Denies New Mexico Compound Residents Bail
    September 13, 2018

    A federal judge denied bail on Wednesday to all five members of an extended family accused of operating a training camp for a violent attack on public institutions out of their isolated New Mexico compound.

    During the arraignment hearing, Magistrate Judge Kirtan Khalsa told the defendants there was "clear and convincing evidence that you are a danger to the community," The Associated Press reported.

    A federal grand jury indicted the group on Tuesday on conspiracy and federal firearms charges stemming from the discovery of a cache of weapons after law enforcement raided their home in search of a missing boy but, instead, found 11 malnourished children living in squalid conditions.

    Federal prosecutors say that between Dec. 2017 and August 2018, the group, who are either siblings or related by marriage, had "a common plan to prepare for violent attacks on government, military, educational and financial institutions."

    more from above:

    The indictment, which was filed this afternoon, charges the five defendants, residents of a compound in Amalia, in Taos County, N.M., with conspiring knowingly to provide an alien illegally and unlawfully in the United States, possession of firearms and ammunition. The indictment also charges Leveille, a Haitian national illegally and unlawfully in the United States, with possession of firearms and ammunition.

    The conspiracy charge alleges that the defendants conspired to provide Leveille, an alien unlawfully in the United States, with firearms and ammunition from at least Nov. 2017 through Aug. 2018. The indictment alleges that, as part of the conspiracy, the defendants transported firearms and ammunition from Georgia to New Mexico in Dec. 2017. The indictment further alleges that, between Dec. 2017 and Aug. 2018, the defendants established a training camp and firing range in Taos County, where they stored firearms and ammunition and engaged in firearms and tactical training as part of their common plan to prepare for violent attacks on government, military, educational, and financial institutions.

    The FBI arrested the defendants on Aug. 31, 2018, on a federal criminal complaint that charged Leveille with being an alien unlawfully in possession of firearms and ammunition. The complaint also charged Leveille’s four co-defendants with aiding and abetting her in committing the offense, and with conspiring with her to commit the offense.

    The defendants' home in Amalia, N.M., served as a firing range and training camp to carry out an attack as part of a religious prophecy. According to the indictment, some of the minors were being prepared "to engage in jihad and ... to die as martyrs."


    If convicted on the conspiracy charge, the five defendants each face a statutory penalty of five years of imprisonment. If convicted on the firearms charge, Leveille faces a statutory maximum penalty of ten years of imprisonment and deportation upon completion of her sentence. Charges in indictments are merely accusations and defendants are presumed innocent unless found guilty in a court of law.

    Scary. And if I am opposed, I must be unwelcoming, bigoted, racist, yadayada.

    What about those children? What about our children's futures?
    Can Americans establish camps in other countries to train war skills with the intent of attacking citizens there?
