Afghan immigrant denies killing wife over honour
by Peter Small
An Afghan immigrant who stabbed and nearly decapitated his wife denies she enraged him by asserting her rights and tarnishing his honour.
Peer Khairi rejected repeated suggestions Thursday he killed his wife Randjida, 53, in a murderous fury over her increasing independence and support for their children's Western ways.
"You said that Randjida was informed that women in Canada have a lot of rights and that's when she started acting out and insulting you," prosecutor Amanda Camara suggested in her cross-examination.
