A woman accused of being involved in the murder of a Jewish man in Iran reportedly had charges against her dropped after investigators said that “if you were involved in killing a Jew, you did a good deed,” Israel’s Channel 2 reported.

Daniel Magrufta, 24, the son of a wealthy Iranian businessman, was murdered last week. The report said that it was at first believed he was murdered during a robbery at his home, but no evidence of a break-in could be found.

The Jewish community believes the girl, who he was dating, and who is the daughter of a member of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, was involved in his death.

The incident comes just over one month after a Jewish woman was murdered by Muslim extremists intent on demolishing her house to make room for the expansion of a mosque.

Current Iranian government statistics place 8,756 Jews in the country. In 2009, there were 25,000.
