Mohammad and Tina Torabi troubled marriage: marred by drugs violence and dysfunction:
The husband’s death comes in the aftermath of what detectives described a troubled marriage marred by drugs and violence, including claims of abuse toward the wife at the hands of Mohammad Torabi.
The couple had married in Houston in 2012, and lived in Texas before moving to New York to be near the husband’s relatives.
Sources familiar with the case claimed Mohammad at some point turning his wife, 30, on to drugs.
Last January, Torabi’s wife won an order of protection against her husband- which had been repeatedly renewed.
‘We knew the dad was no good and didn’t want him anywhere near the wife and kids,‘ a source told via the nypost.
The twins were on the city’s radar since their birth last year, after doctors found opioids in their systems upon their birth.
Unclear is whether Mohammad made time for the children, after the husband was ordered to stay away from Tina after conceding previously choking the woman.
Neighbors said, Tina struggled having to take care of the couple’s twins along with three other older children, including sisters Mila, 2, Nadia, 4 and Ariana, 5.
‘She never looked like something was wrong with her — she [just] looked overwhelmed,’ said one neighbor.
Kian remained Saturday in critical but stable condition in the intensive care unit at Cohen Children’s Medical Center.
The boy suffered multiple broken ribs, bruises to his groin, a broken hip, a lacerated liver and severe swelling to his abdomen.
More lacerations were found all over his body.
Elaina suffered bruising to the back of her head and genitals, a large wound on her abdomen and blisters and open lesions all over her body.
Tina Torabi has since been charged with with felony assault for the brutal injuries to her toddler son Kian, and is expected to be charged in the beating death of the boy’s twin sister.
Residents put out candles and flowers in Auburndale, for 2 babies rushed to the hospital Wednesday night. The baby girl died, her twin brother, in critical condition. Their mother, 30-yr-old Tina Torabi, is charged with felony assault on the boy. Neighbors say they’re stunned. pic.twitter.com/eE1oewJk9e
