Hassan Razzaq faces murder charges for the fatal stabbing of his father, Mohammed Razzaq, in July 2015 as the dad napped on the family’s couch in Kensington.
The 22-year-old suspect’s family initially rallied behind him, pulling together assets in order to get Razzaq released on $1 million bail.
But the he landed back behind bars after he was accused of attacking one of his sisters — allegedly threatening to kill her — in May 2016. He was then slapped with charges of criminal mischief for that incident.
Razzaq remained silent in court Monday on both cases, shifting around in his cuffs as Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Vincent DelGiudice addressed the empty gallery.
“Prosecutors and the defense are engaged in substantial plea negotiations,” the jurist said, before adjourning the case to Aug. 1.
DelGiudice declined to renew an order of protection taken out on behalf of Razzaq’s sister, saying it was no longer necessary.
Razzaq previously shot down a plea deal related to the criminal mischief charge, which would have offered him a year in jail.
If convicted of murder, he faces up to life behind bars.
