In June, a judge sentenced 22-year-old Shafiqul Islam, a Bangladeshi national, for the murder of 73-year-old Lois Decker. "This man was a dangerous criminal," said Hudson New York District Attorney Paul Czajka. "He should not have been in the United States. At the very least, he should have been in detention." Islam murdered Decker after serving a year for sexually assaulting a child. After his release from prison, a judge ordered Islam deported. Bangladesh, however, refused to take him back. Because of the 2001 high court ruling, Islam stayed in the country.
