Teen Could Be Charged With Murder In Mom's Fall From Mansion Window

FARMINGTON HILLS (WWJ) - A 16-year-old boy could be charged with murdering his mother after she was found dead outside of their Farmington Hills mansion early Monday morning.

The teen is currently being held at Oakland County Children's Village in what's being called a homicide case. A hearing is set for Aug. 31.

Detectives were called to the massive home on Howard Street, near Halsted and I-696, after 35-year-old Nada Huranieh apparently fell out of a second-floor window. Investigators then discovered evidence showing Huranieh's death was not an accident, indicating that she might have been intentionally pushed out of the window.

The cause of death is pending as investigators await toxicology test results.

Huranieh, a personal trainer, was in the middle of a divorce with Dr. Bassel Altantawi, whose medical license was suspended earlier this year for scamming Blue Cross and Medicaid out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

An investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact Farmington Hills police at 248-871-2610.
