Ali Abulaban, AKA JinnKid, 29, a TikTok comedian, has pleaded not guilty to the murders of his wife Ana Abulaban, 29, and her friend Rayburn Barron, 28, in San Diego.
Deputy District Attorney Taran Brast stated on Monday (October 25th) that Ali Abulaban shot his wife Ana Abulaban and friend Rayburn Barron because he accused Ana was cheating on him.
Ana Abulaban, 28, was a 28-year-old mother of a five-year-old daughter who lived in San Diego with her husband Ali Abulaban.
Ana is said to have been the victim of domestic violence at the hands of Ali. Ali pushed Ana, causing an injury, which was observed by their small daughter, in September.
On October 18th, Ana urged her husband to leave their apartment, but Ali made a copy of the key. He entered the flat on October 21st and vandalized it before installing a listening device on his daughter’s iPad to spy on his wife.
Rayburn Cardenas Barron, a 29-year-old Mexican immigrant, was friends with Ana Abulaban. Rayburn, Ali Abulaban suspected, was “her new lover.”
Friends and family praised Rayburn as “an incredible brother, son, nephew, cousin, and friend who touched everyone’s lives.”
“Rayburn dedicated his life to always putting his family first,” his relatives claimed. In many ways, he was the glue that held his family together, always reaching out to family members to bring them closer together. He was a dependable friend who could always be counted on in a crisis. Ray’s kindness and considerate gestures had a huge impact on so many people’s lives.
Officers located Ana Abulaban and Rayburn Barron with gunshot wounds to their upper bodies inside the San Diego residence, and they unfortunately died at the scene approximately 3:30 p.m.
Ali has been charged with both killings despite pleading not guilty to the double murder of his wife and her companion. The judge has ordered Ali Abulaban to be held in prison without bail and to remain away from his daughter as part of a protective order.
