Mother suspected in UK 'honor murder' implicates husband in teen's killing
by Richard Allen Greene
Shafilea Ahmed's parents have long denied killing their pretty teenage daughter for shaming the family, but the "honor murder" case that has gripped Britain took an unexpected turn this week.
Shafilea's mother, Farzana, abruptly changed her story in court and implicated her husband, Iftikhar, in the killing, CNN affiliate ITV reported Monday.
Iftikhar and Farzana Ahmed are on trial in Chester, England, accused of killing Shafilea, 17, (pictured left) in September 2003. They have pleaded not guilty.
