Man indicted on aggravated murder charge in daughter’s death


CLEVELAND (AP) — A man who admits fatally shooting his daughter at their family’s suburban Cleveland home has been indicted on an aggravated murder charge.

Sixty-three-year-old Jamal Mansour told Rocky River police he was angry when he shot 27-year-old Tahani Mansour. The indictment was handed up Wednesday. Mansour is being held on a $4.5 million bond.

Authorities haven’t said why Jamal Mansour became so enraged he fired three rounds at his youngest child. He told a judge it was an accident after his arrest Sept. 27.

Friends say Tahani Mansour was bright and energetic and had recently been hired as a clinical pharmacist by the Cleveland Clinic.

Jamal Mansour’s attorney referred to a previous comment that said Mansour loved his family.

Mansour was born in Jordan and came to the U.S. in 1978. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
