Hossein Nayeri, one of three suspects charged in the gruesome torture and sexual mutilation of a Newport Beach medical marijuana dispensary owner, will be arraigned today at Orange County's Superior Courthouse.

He arrived in Orange County on Sept. 15 and faces charges of aggravated mayhem, torture and residential burglary. As the Weekly first reported last year, two other suspects have already been arrested in what sounds like a scene ripped straight out of Scarface or an episode of Breaking Bad.More »
