As first reported by Str8UpGayPorn last Sunday, gay porn star Ali Liam (whose real name is now known to be Othman Al-Muttalaby) went missing following the stabbing death of his boyfriend in their San Francisco apartment. Today, we can report that Al-Muttalaby was arrested last night in San Francisco, and he’s been charged with first degree murder:

chargedThe Bay Area Reporter spoke with a friend of Al-Muttalaby’s:

Vivien Habeeb told the Bay Area Reporter in a Facebook exchange that she heard from [Al-Muttalably] Tuesday, November 7.

“He called me from a hospital, and I was told by his social worker that police were questioning him right after he was out of some surgery,” said Habeeb, who lives in Davis, California. She declined to share more information, indicating that she was waiting for permission from police. Police spokespeople didn’t immediately confirm Habeeb’s statement.

A source has confirmed to Str8UpGayPorn that Al-Muttalaby is in fact at San Francisco General Hospital, and he’s being detained there on a 51/50 (involuntary psychiatric hold) while awaiting transfer to jail.

As Ali Liam, Al-Muttalaby appeared in at least four gay porn scenes this year for Men.com, Pride Studios, and Paragon Men. He was also an escort and popular go-go dancer who was booked at various clubs and events around the country.

This is a developing story…

UPDATE 12/3/17:

Al-Muttalaby has been transferred out of the hospital and into county jail in San Francisco. And, in addition to the murder charge, the prosecution has added a domestic violence charge, given that Al-Muttalaby lived with the boyfriend he allegedly murdered. Bail has been set at $10,000,000, and his next court appearance, where he’ll presumably enter a plea, is scheduled for December 13th.

  • What a sad story. I sincerely hope the person(s) responsible are held accountable and the victim’s family receives some sort of justice for what was done to him.

  • Schnitzel

    So held on 51/50 after needing surgery seems to indicate he attempted to take his own life I’m guessing?

    • Hereweare

      Or he was injured during a fight that led to the murder, and the 51/50 is because he’s a murderer?

  • Goodboy

    Must me serious since first degree murder involves premeditation. He wanted the BF dead.

    • Hari Kalyan

      And stabbing too..ugh

    • Maximus

      Not always. Cal. Pen. Code § 189 includes quite a few unpremeditated forms of homicide that nonetheless constitute first degree murder. For instance, a homicide committed in the perpetration of mayhem—defined by Cal. Pen. Code § 203 as the unlawful (i.e., nonconsensual) and malicious dismemberment, disfigurement, or disabling of a body part, including putting out an eye, cutting a tongue, or slitting an ear, nose, or lip—is first degree murder.

    Luckily he didn’t do it in Texas otherwise he’d be on the easy tag tollway to death row. To stab an individual the way he did is outright heinous. My heart goes out to the victim’s family.

    • emercycrite

      Shame he didn’t do it in Texas.

  • Baradude

    This has got king cobra written all over it.

  • sxg

    What type of surgery could he be getting? Plastic surgery to hide his identity? Or for wounds caused in a potential brawl with him and his client/boyfriend?

  • Deviancy Behavir

    51/50 holds are for people who are currently suicidal or have thoughts of harming others. He probably either got into a fight with the victim or he tried to commit suicide and needed surgery, because of his injuries.

  • Butch_from_AL

    who cares?

  • snail

    Not to be a jerk, but what the fuck was the social worker doing revealing sensitive information to his friend?? Healthcare professionals are prohibited by law to reveal any patient information unless the client/patient has signed a form giving explicit consent for information to be given to that person.

    sad news all around.
    time and time again we see the need for increased mental health outreach

  • Watari

    Another pornstar I have to purge from my library. That limp dick won’t be that hard to give up.

  • Maximus

    Well duh.

  • Devin

    I’m sure they’re in the process of reaching out

  • John

    I’m sure they’re polishing up some of the unreleased scenes they have, should be out soon

  • FrenchBug

    And on the “Keeping up with Porn Performers In Trouble with the Law in San Francisco” theme, looks like the post-Thanksgiving hearing for Blu Kennedy and boyfriend did take place. Next one is in early January of next year.
    Sadly, I have no information regarding the substance of what is going on with the case.

    • Zachary Sire

      Yeah as noted before, it’s challenging to get court info on things in SF county unless you or someone you know is physically there and present at the courthouse. Or, you have to order things by mail, but the information won’t come until weeks after it’s occurred.

      • FrenchBug

        When this first came out, I genuinely was thinking of offering you to be your court reporter for this as my schedule is flexible enough that I could attend those things but the repeated postponements make me think I would have wasted my time.

        • loyalty888

          Zach, please take him up on this offer!

          • FrenchBug

            If it goes to trial and my work schedule is still what it is now, we’ll see if Zach is interested.
            Part of me is still hoping it was a giant misunderstanding and it will go away *sigh*

  • bob80

    Pity he never did a bottoming scene, he’s hot. Never gonna happen now :(

    • James

      Maybe they can find an “audition tape”

  • James

    That main photo of his face while topping…. “Hey mom look at me!”

    more trash.
