Migrant Crisis: SÖDERTÖRN, Sweden: 18 Years For Honour Killing

12/02/2016 SÖDERTÖRN, Sweden – 18 years for honour killing

Zirdest Edil, 53, beat his wife for wearing a sleeveless dress then later murdered her, mutilating and stabbing her with a knife in what has been called an “honour killing” by the prosecutor.

The court heard the wife had wanted a divorce from her abusive husband. The sleeveless dress was found cut up at the scene of the murder, and an academic testified the mutilation of the body bore hallmarks of having been a ritualised honour killing. Mr. Edil will serve 18 years, reports Aftonbladet.
