    This undated image provided by the Tulsa County Jail shows Stanley Majors. Police say Khalid Jabara was killed at his Tulsa, Okla., home Friday, Aug. 12, 2016, and 61-year-old Stanley Majors is being held without bail on a first-degree murder complaint and possession of a firearm after a felony conviction, but online court records do not show that he has been formally charged. It was not clear if Majors has an attorney to speak on his behalf.

    An Oklahoma man awaiting trial for running his next-door neighbor over with a car now stands accused of gunning down her son — and the family says it all stems from a hatred of Muslims, even though they're Lebanese Christians.

    The heartbroken family of 37-year-old shooting victim Khalid Jabara said the twin tragedies were part of a multi-year campaign of harassment by neighbor Vernon Stanley Majors. 

    "This suspect had a history of bigotry against our family," the Jabara family said in a statement. Majors was arrested last September for allegedly mowing down Jabara's mother Haifa Jabara with a car — two years after she and her husband took out an order of protection against him, according to the Tulsa Police.
