(KSL News) A Murray man accused of murdering the brother of his ex-girlfriend reportedly celebrated just moments after committing the crime.

The Deseret News reports that during a preliminary hearing yesterday, a witness claimed Nazir Rahimi flexed and kissed his biceps moments after stabbing 19-year-old Farhad Mullahkhel in April.

The stabbing happened during a fight outside of Rahimi's home. The victim had gone there to retrieve his sister's cell phone.

Rahimi will go to trial on a count of first-degree murder.
