TULSA, Okla. – When an Oklahoma man befriended his Lebanese neighbors, his husband lashed out at the family, hurling epithets and at one point allegedly running over the mother with a car.
The conflict in Tulsa went on for years until a week ago. That's when, authorities say, Stanley Majors shot and killed Khalid Jabara, whom his husband had come to think of as a kind of apprentice.
The case received a brief mention in the presidential campaign from Hillary Clinton, who shared a Facebook post Thursday from the Jabara family and urged the country to unite "to ensure that no other family loses a beloved son or daughter because of prejudice and bigotry."
Stephen Schmauss says he trained the 37-year-old Jabara to use power tools and to take apart computer circuitry.
