Former OU Student Busted Planning Hit On Future Father-In-Law
NORMAN, Oklahoma - A former OU dental student faces charges for solicitation to commit murder.
Aseem Saxena, 31, allegedly planned an attack on his future father-in-law. An undercover investigation led to Saxena's arrest at his home in the 300 block of Walker on March 26.
Oklahoma City Police began working with OU Police when the university officials expressed a growing concern with one of their students, Aseem Saxena.
Saxena had allegedly been bragging to several students and faculty at OU Health Sciences Center about his obsession with guns and number of weapons he owned. There was also suspicion that Saxena was selling drugs.
As a result of the concerns, Oklahoma City Police Detectives noted Saxena was removed from the OU College of Dentistry program.
According to police reports, Saxena was heavily in debt and posing as an oral surgeon. Saxena's fiancée allegedly believed he was a dentist until her father found out about the lies.
Detectives indicated the fiancée broke up with Saxena when she learned he had not told the truth. Saxena blamed her father for the break up and became angry enough plan an attack.
During the investigation, Saxena met with an undercover officer and agreed to pay $500 to have his future father-in-law beat with a bat or run off the road and injured.
According to police reports, Saxena wanted his fiancée's father to know he arranged for the beating. Saxena allegedly asked the undercover officer to threaten the father and demand he apologize to Saxena or he would face a beating every week.
Police said Saxena was okay with the fact that the schemes could result in his fiancée's father being seriously hurt or even killed. Payment arrangements were made between Saxena and the undercover officer. Oklahoma City Police arrested him as a result of the investigation.
"We also found numerous guns and drugs in his home," said Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow.
Saxena is being held in the Oklahoma County Jail on several complaints, including: solicitation to commit murder, assault and battery with a deadly weapon, possession of firearms, and drug possession.
