This mirrors the honor killing of Shaima Alawadi in California. Her family blamed “islamophobes” as well, and had law enforcement chasing their tails looking for fictional “haters” and anti-Muslim bigots. Reza Aslan ran this tweet at the time.
Her husband did it, of course.

Kashif Parvaiz Sentenced To At Least 73 Years In Wife’s Killing « CBS New York.
MORRISTOWN, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A judge threw the book Thursday at a Brooklyn man who conspired to kill his wife while the couple was on a walk with one of their young sons in New Jersey.
Kashif Parvaiz, who was convicted in February of scheming with his Massachusetts girlfriend to kill his wife and make it look like a random attack, was sentenced to at least 73 years in prison without parole, CBS2’s Tony Aiello reported.
The August 2011 shooting occurred while Parvaiz and his wife, 27-year-old Nazish Noorani, walked with their son in Boonton, near Noorani’s family home.
Antoinette Stephen pleaded guilty to murder and other offenses and testified against him. The Billerica resident was having an affair with Parvaiz and has admitted firing the fatal shots.
She faces up to 30 years in prison when she’s sentenced next month.
Parvaiz showed no emotion when his brother-in-law, Kaleem Noorani, called him out as a murderous fiend in court.
“You are a failure as a husband, father, son, as a human being, and above all, you are an evil murderer,” he said.
Parvaiz was shot in the leg and claimed they were targeted in an anti-Muslim attack. But his story unraveled, and Stephen eventually admitted she killed Noorani under orders from Parvaiz.
Investigators recovered the murder weapon from his SUV.
The defense team asked the judge to Parvaiz to 30 years, but prosecutor Matthew Troiano strongly disagreed, calling Parvaiz a coward who endangered his own son.
“He put that little boy into direct harm’s way,” Troiano said. “After your wife is shot, you do nothing. You don’t run to her. You run away.”
At the trial, the prosecution presented evidence that Parvaiz considered other ways to kill his wife, including poisoning her.
Gilson called “cold-blooded” and “beyond redemption” in sentencing him.
“He did in fact show us plenty of remorse and regret and emotion,” defense attorney John Bruno said. “Unfortunately, those feelings did not come through to the trial judge.”
Parvaiz is planning to appeal his conviction and sentence.
He was convicted of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, endangering the welfare of a child, child abuse, hindering apprehension by lying to police and weapons charges.
