Orange County, California – 26-year-old Ramy Hany Mounir Fahim was charged with special circumstances murders for fatally stabbing two men in Anaheim.
Fahim was charged with “two counts of murder, and two enhancements each of lying in wait, multiple murders, and the personal use of a deadly weapon.” the Orange County District Attorney’s office said.
Fahim stabbed a co-worker and his co-worker’s roommate in an apartment off of Katella Avenue last week.

Ramy Hany Mounir Fahim, 26, was charged with two counts of murder, and two enhancements each of lying in wait, multiple murders, and the personal use of a deadly weapon. The special circumstances of lying in wait and multiple murders make Fahim eligible for the death penalty, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s office.
Fahim is accused of fatally stabbing his coworker, 23-year-old Griffin Cuomo, and Cuomo’s roommate, 23-year-old Jonathan Bahm, in their Katella Avenue apartment in Anaheim on Tuesday morning. Cuomo, who had just graduated from Chapman University last year, and Fahim worked together at Pence Wealth Management in Orange County.
Prosecutors say a building security guard encountered Fahim on the apartment complex’s roof Monday at midnight, just hours before the men were murdered at about 6:30 a.m. Fahim was seen on the fifth floor, where the Cuomo and Bahm had their apartment, the morning of the murders, authorities said.
Fahim was the third person inside the victims’ apartment when Anaheim police responded to the call of a possible assault in progress. He was taken to a hospital with injuries and later arrested in the murders.
