  • A new hearing has been set for July 22 at the North Justice Center in Fullerton, California, for Ramy Fahim.
  • Fahim is the employee at LPL Network RIA firm Pence Wealth Management who was arrested in April as a suspect in a double homicide.
  • He is charged with killing a co-worker and the co-worker's roommate.

A new hearing has been scheduled for the employee at LPL Network RIA firm Pence Wealth Management who was arrested in April as a suspect in a double homicide, according to the website of the Superior Court of California for Orange County.

A new arraignment has been scheduled for 8:30 a.m. July 22 in Room N3 of the court’s North Justice Center in Fullerton, California. The new date was set on Friday, during another hearing, according to the website.

Before Friday’s hearing, Ramy Hany Mounir Fahim26, of Irvine, California, was charged with special circumstances murder in the stabbing deaths of his co-worker and the co-worker’s roommate in their Anaheim apartment, according to Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer.

The “special circumstances of lying in wait and multiple murders” make Fahim “eligible for the death penalty,” according to Spitzer.

Fahim was charged with two counts of murder and two enhancements each of lying in wait, multiple murders and personal use of a deadly weapon, Spitzer said in a news release.

Fahim is accused of stabbing his Pence co-worker Griffin Cuomo, 23, to death and then stabbing Cuomo’s roommate, Jonathan Bahm, 23, to death at around 6:30 a.m. April 19.

A building security guard encountered Fahim on the roof of the victims’ apartment complex around midnight on April 18, only hours before the killings, according to Spitzer. Fahim was also seen on the same floor of the victims’ apartment the morning of the killings.

Fahim was still in the victims’ apartment and “suffering from a minor injury” when Anaheim police responded to the 911 call, the Anaheim Police Department said April 20 in a news release.

He was taken to a hospital for treatment and was then “interviewed by homicide detectives who ultimately placed Fahim under arrest for the murder of the two victims,” police said, adding: “A knife believed to be used in the murders was also located at the crime scene” and Fahim’s vehicle was located nearby and seized as evidence.

Senior Deputy District Attorney Jeff Moore of the Homicide Unit is prosecuting this case.

Cuomo served as a marketing/media assistant for Pence, according to the firm’s website.

Fahim was a research associate at Pence, according to his LinkedIn profile.

“We send our heartfelt condolences to those impacted during this difficult time,” an LPL spokesperson told ThinkAdvisor.

Pence Wealth Management did not respond to requests for comment.
