Man charged with murder in two separate cases

THE BRONX -

A man accused of killing a woman with a screwdriver has now been charged with murder for the second time in connection with the death of his 73-year-old uncle, Owen Dillard.

Both slayings happened weeks ago.

During a court appearance on the first charge, Idris Abdul-Muhaymin reportedly blew a kiss to the victim’s husband, prompting outrage from relatives in the courtroom.

Abdul-Muhaymin’s uncle, a lottery winner, was found dead with stab wounds in his neck in his home on Beekman Avenue.

It is unclear if Dillard’s $50,000 winnings have anything to do with the murder.

Dillard was well liked according to neighbors and family members, and spent his free time driving cars or helping community members.
