Bail Set At $10 Million For Hayes Valley Murder Suspect

Yesterday, bail was set at $10 million for Othman Al-Muttalaby—also known as Alkoraishie Ali—who was arrested last week in connection with a fatal stabbing in Hayes Valley on November 2nd.

The San Francisco resident faces murder and domestic violence charges in relation to the death of Keith Harris, a 48-year-old Vicksburg, Mississippi native who reportedly worked as software architect at 360i, Bay City News reports.

The two were allegedly dating.

Last Tuesday, Al-Muttalaby was arrested at San Francisco General Hospital (SFGH) in connection with the fatal stabbing. He was scheduled to appear in court yesterday for arraignment; however, the 26 year-old’s appearance was postponed because he’s still at SFGH undergoing treatment for an unspecified injury.

Deputy Public Defender Cindy Elias reportedly told the judge she expects to have more information regarding Al-Muttalaby’s condition later this week. (She declined to comment on the extent of Al-Muttalaby injuries, and if said injuries were self-inflicted.)

As we previously reported, Harris was discovered lying on the floor of an apartment in the 300 block of Hayes Street suffering from stab wounds. Paramedics were called to the scene and Harris was transported to the trauma center at SFGH, where he succumbed to his injuries.

Al-Muttalaby has also used the name Ali Liam, which he used in at least one pornographic film, according to The Bay Area Reporter. On Facebook, he identifies as a personal trainer and go-go dancer, but he also maintains a profile on Rent.Men, an escort site.

Despite the arrest, police are still asking anyone with information about this case to contact SFPD via the department's anonymous tip line at 415-575-4444, or text TIP411 with "SFPD" at the start of the message.
