A Brooklyn man accused of murdering a 66-year-old professor after a war of words over immigration is claiming self-defense, his attorney said Friday.
Through attorney Jay Schwitzman, Mirzo Atadzhanov, 28, of Brooklyn, entered a plea of not guilty for murder and burglary charges in the May 7 death of Jeremy Safran, a professor of psychology at The New School for Social Research as well as New York University’s Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy & Psychoanalysis.
The article goes on to state the following:
According to court papers, Safran hired Atadzhanov to “work on his lights” in his home, even though Atadzhanov said he wasn’t an electrician.
The New York Daily News reported that Safran, a Canadian, wasn’t satisfied with Atadzhanov’s work, complaining: “This country cannot benefit from immigrants.” Atadzhanov, who claimed to be from Tajikistan, said he was offended, and their fight escalated.
Atadzhanov said Safran tried to stab him with a combat knife, and he “followed his instincts,” according to court documents. Prosecutors, however, claim that Safran was working out when Atadzhanov broke into his home and attacked him.
