A man of Jordanian descent may receive the death penalty after he was found guilty by a Texas jury of killing his American son-in-law and his daughter’s close friend in “honor killings” linked to her marriage to a non-Muslim. According to prosecutors in Houston, Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan, resorted to murder in reaction to his daughter, Nesreen Irsan, converting to Christianity and marrying a Christian man. He took the life of her husband and close friend who had supported their relationship. "Honor and shame, that's what this is all about," special prosecutor Anna Emmons said to jurors. "You heard him say honor is a big deal to him. And the only way to clean that honor is to kill." Irsan's trial of five weeks culminated in only 35 minutes of juror deliberation Thursday when he was convicted in the murder of Coty Beavers and Gelareh Bagherzadeh, according to the Houston Chronicle.
