A Muslim immigrant has been sentenced to death by a court in Texas for killing his Christian son-in-law and another woman after his daughter converted to Christianity.

Sentencing - Ali - Mahwood-Awad - Irsan - Muslim

The sentencing of Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan, a Muslim immigrant from Jordan, was held on Tuesday.

Irsan reportedly became enraged in 2012 after his Muslim daughter decided to convert to Christianity and marry Coty Beavers, who became his son-in-law.

Shmou Alrawabdeh, Irsan's wife, testified that her husband carried out the killings in an attempt to "clean his honor" for his daughter's conversion.

She detailed how Irsan made his way inside Beavers' unlocked apartment near Houston where he waited for his daughter to leave for work and then shot his son-in-law to death.



Bagherzadeh was killed in January 2012 as she was driving in her car toward her parents' home.
