A man awaiting trial on rape charges, who was released on bail because of 'COVID-19 concerns,' allegedly murdered his accuser, according to reports.

33-year-old Ibrahim Bouaichi was indicted in January after being accused by Karla Dominguez of rape, sodomy, strangulation, and abduction.

But Bouaichi was released in April on a $25,000 bond after his lawyers cited concerns about the spread of the coronavirus, the Washington Post reported.

Bouaichi showed up at his victim Dominguez’s Alexandria apartment and shot her dead, police said.

Bouaichi was immediately considered a suspect.

The man was spotted in Prince George’s County, Maryland, on Wednesday morning by federal marshals who engaged in a pursuit that ended with Bouaichi crashing his car and allegedly shooting himself.

Bouaichi was reportedly in grave condition in a hospital on Thursday.

Bouaichi’s lawyers wrote in their petition for a bond:

“Social distancing and proper disinfecting measures are impossible while incarcerated."

"Simply put, the risk of contracting Covid-19 in a jail is exceedingly obvious.”

The lawyers also argued that they themselves were a risk of contracting the virus whenever they visited their client in jail.

His lawyers said in a statement:

We are “certainly saddened by the tragedy both families have suffered here,” adding they “were looking forward to trial."

"Unfortunately, the pandemic continued the trial date by several months, and we didn’t get the chance to put forth our case.”

A GoFundMe account was later created to raise funds for Dominguez’s funeral arrangements, raising almost $5,000 in three days.

The news comes as The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is preparing to launch a new effort to free thousands of prisoners from prisons across America by lobbying governors to grant "mass clemency" in response to "systemic injustice."
