Man who drags woman to death detained

A man on a flight for Greece was detained in New York for the death of a woman who was dragged several miles (kilometers) under a minivan.

As the plane was pulling away from the gate at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detained Abdelaziz Hamze, 24, on Delta flight 132 bound for Athens, Greece, Broward County Sheriff's spokesman Elliot Cohen said.

Hamze, a U.S. citizen, will be charged with first-degree murder, Cohen said.

Hamze has been accused in the dragging death of 44-year-old Sandra Hall. She was in a Cadillac struck by the minivan Sunday night, Broward County sheriff's officials said.

The minivan fled, with the Cadillac in pursuit, authorities said. Hall stood in front of the minivan when both vehicles were stopped in traffic.

The minivan's driver sped off after hitting Hall and tossing her onto the hood, authorities said. Hall fell off the hood and became lodged underneath the minivan, officials said.

Hall was dragged for several miles before she fell from the undercarriage. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
