Police officers in California say a 35-year old man who bludgeoned his grandparents to death last year was influenced by and infatuated with radical Islamists, as reported by the Los Angeles Times.

Nathaniel Scheiern killed his grandparents after attending a church service with them on June 28, 2015.

The judge hearing the case ruled in a recent preliminary hearing there was enough evidence to move forward with a trial.

Although it is unclear if Scheiern converted to Islam, his Facebook page is full of declarations to Allah, including the following (all taken verbatim):

“Ponder no [ more ] and bombs to cease [ unwise strikes of Believers ] on ( Allah’s children, women, and the Elderly and the young ) who fight but by Example in except concepts to for (God and God alone) guidence and spiritual growth. One love n respect”

“None in mans wisdom can allow a [leader] to fall into the ways of those [ Secure ] in faith and full of patients lacking [ Allah ] and thus far from [ patience ] of (God) so the answer is up to free-will. And FREE I WILL (God willing) [His] Peoples Mind.”

“Rivers of punishment flow to [ advise ] for only God demands Praise.”

“Want Allah in All. !”

“Praise be to Allah who [ will ] in searing pain smite my enimies with haste … its not a race if quickness .but of [ Waste ] no more time in [ Staying ] pious and [ true ] in patiently waving.”

Scheiern also posted a graphic Islamic State propaganda video with the following warning:  “GRAPHIC FOOTAGE. ADULTS ONLY. LESSONS WITH LIFE’S TESTS MAKES EASY A`s!”
