Prosecutors charge man in beating death of Saudi student at Wisconsin university

A Minnesota man with a string of domestic violence convictions was charged in the death of a Saudi Arabian college student stemming from a confrontation in northwestern Wisconsin last year, prosecutors said Friday.

Cullen Osburn, 27, of Minneapolis, was charged with felony murder and aggravated battery in the death of University of Wisconsin-Stout student Hussain Alnahdi, 24, in October. Authorities began speaking with Osburn soon after Alnahdi's death, but he disappeared after telling police the altercation wasn't based on race and promising to come in to talk to detectives, according to the criminal complaint.

Online court records didn't list a defense attorney.
