Man accused of running illegal dental practice charged in patient's death

A man in Michigan who was allegedly running an illegal dental practice has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of one of his patients, NBC affiliate WDIV reported July 11.

Zayed Albodour was accused by the family of Ahmad Nesserdine of running an illegal dental clinic out of his home in Dearborn, Mich. Mr. Nesserdine had received services, including root canals and veneers, from Mr. Albodour that caused significant and recurring pain. 

On July 6, police found Mr. Nesserdine dead from at least one gunshot wound at Mr. Albodour's home, the report said.

Mr. Albodour is being held without bond and scheduled to appear in court July 18. He has also been charged with one count of a felony firearm. 

Mr. Albodour had previously applied to become a certified dentist in Minnesota, but his application was denied, the report said.
