Nikoubin also told a hotel employee that she had stabbed the man, according to the arrest report obtained by KLAS.

She told police that she “wanted revenge” and had prepared by listening to a song called “Grave Digger,” which “gave her the motivation… to carry out her revenge.”

Soleimani was assassinated in January 2020 by U.S. drone strike near Baghdad International Airport on the orders of former president Donald Trump.
