TikTok users were shocked to hear reports that Ali Abulaban killed his wife, Ana Nasse Abulaban, and the latter’s rumored boyfriend, Rayburn Cardenas Barron.
Multiple publications revealed that Ali was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder, and he could also face the death penalty if convicted. But during his recent court appearance, Ali pleaded not guilty to the charges.
What Happened To Ana Nasse Abulaban?
Last week, officers from the San Diego Police Department were called to the Spire San Diego luxury apartment complex where Ana was staying with her 5-year-old daughter.
The officers that arrived on the scene saw Ana and Barron lying dead in the living room. Later that day, Ali was stopped by police officers while he was in his car with his daughter. He reportedly called the police and confessed to killing his wife and Barron.
Reports claimed that Ali shot his wife and her rumored boyfriend using a handgun after learning about their relationship.
Prior to Ana’s death, she reportedly expressed her desire to divorce Ali. However, the latter refused.
The couple’s relationship took a turn for the worse after Ana asked Ali to leave their apartment. And even though the TikTok star agreed, Ana didn’t know that Ali had the keys to their apartment copied.
During one of Ali’s visits to his daughter, he reportedly installed a device that would spy on Ana’s conversations. And when he heard Ana and Barron talking, Ali became enraged.
The TikTok star, who is known for impersonating a slew of celebrities, rushed to the apartment and killed the rumored couple.
According to Gaming Bible, Ali told the court that he was not responsible for the deaths of his wife and her rumored boyfriend. But he allegedly told his daughter that he hurt her mom.
Deputy District Attorney Taren Brast also said that Ali confessed to killing his wife during his phone conversation with his mom. And when he picked up his daughter from school, he was still in possession of a firearm.
Who Is Ali Abulaban?
Ali is a TikTok star who had almost a million followers on the platform before his arrest. He is also known as JinnKin on TikTok, and he uses his account to make his followers laugh.
One of his most famous TikTok videos includes his impersonation of some scenes from the movie Skyrim. He also impersonated the American rapper 6ix9ine.
But beyond his hilarious videos is a troubled man, who seemingly became more enraged after his wife told him that she wanted a divorce.
According to People, Ali had been living at a hotel before the incident took place. And he had also been spying on Ana for a week.
This is not the first time that he became violent towards his wife. Last month, Ana filed a police report against the TikTok star after allegedly pushing and hurting her.
As of press writing, Abulaban is in jail without bail. His second court appearance is scheduled for Thursday.
