I read that on my local news website. From what I gather he killed her because of a possible negative view Muslims might receive from non-Muslims of their divorce drama. And I was just gobsmacked that that was really his reason.

there is nothing 'honorable' about a man who beats, terrorizes, and ultimately kills a woman...at any stage of the process. he's just a disgusting pig who gives the rest of us a bad name.

You said it best, Sadiesboy.

It's a sick sort of moral code where some ineffable idea of "honor" trumps the life of a woman.
