FILE - In this March 27, 2012 file photo, Kassim Alhimidi, left, looks on alongside his son, Mohammed Alhimidi, during a memorial for his wife, Shaima Alawadi at a mosque in Lakeside, Calif. A California judge is expected to hear the case against Alhimidi, whose wife's beating death drew international attention because it initially appeared to be a hate crime. Prosecutors are scheduled to present their arguments Thursday, July 25, 2013 at a preliminary hearing in El Cajon for Alhimidi, who is charged with his wife’s slaying.
