Pakistani-German couple in Darmstadt sentenced to life for killing their daughter
A Pakistani-German couple has been convicted of killing their daughter on religious grounds after she slept with her boyfriend. The teenager was strangled and dumped in a nearby forest.
In case you didn’t know, this kind of thing is referred to as an “honor” killing.
And by the way, there is no such thing as a life sentence in Germany. Life means fifteen years here.
Lawyers for the defense argued that despite being in Germany for twenty-eight years, the husband was “not properly socialized” in German culture and his wife “had nothing to do with the normal world.”
