Nabra Hassanen, 17, of Reston, Virginia, was found dead in a pond near Washington, D.C., at about 3 p.m. Sunday, after she and a group of teenagers walked back from breakfast and got into a dispute with a motorist.
Martinez was given a public defender during his appearance via video-link at the county's Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court, and the judge ordered that he remain in jail without bail, according to Raymond Morrogh, the Fairfax commonwealth's attorney, the county's chief prosecutor.
Hassanen was with a group of as many as 15 other teens who had left their Sterling-area mosque between Ramadan prayers to get food at a McDonald's, Parker said.
The man allegedly got out of the auto and assaulted the 17-year-old girl as her friends ran to the mosque, where they called police, Wright said.
Fairfax County Police said it did not appear to be a hate crime and the murder was not motivated by Hassanen being a Muslim. "What the investigators told the father and the mother, he hit her in the head and then he put her in the vehicle, and then he threw her in the water", Sherif said.
Mohmoud Hassanen, Nabra's father, told the Guardian that he does not believe the police account and still suspects that his daughter was targeted because of her religion. "I believe so, 100 percent".
The girl was walking with friends when she was attacked and beaten to death. Darwin Martinez Torres had been "driving suspiciously" and later taken into police custody, where he was arrested and charged with murder. Police arrested Torres after a search.
Police believe Torres drove up to the group Nabra was a part of and then engaged into an argument with a male teen on a bicycle before driving onto a curb, prompting the group to scatter. "She came to do her break, so all her, what she did, she came here for the month of Ramadan to do her prayer", Sherif said.

Police in the USA state of Virginia found the remains of a missing Muslim teenager who was assaulted and disappeared overnight after leaving a mosque with her friends in the Sterling area, a statement said on Sunday.

"We urge both local and federal authorities to conduct a thorough and unbiased investigation into all possible motives for this gruesome crime", Ahussain said.
"I lose my daughter".
Two boys in their group who spoke with The AP after paying condolences to the family Monday said they didn't witness anything to make them think it was a hate crime.
Police say there is nothing to indicate, at this point, that this was a hate crime. "What did my daughter do to deserve this?" she said, adding she was told that Torres used a metal baseball bat. It was not immediately clear whether he had entered a plea to the charges against him.
