Hubby disguised himself in burka for honour killing
by Sam Pazzano
A Muslim man wore a traditional woman's burka and female shoes before he strangled his estranged wife in the company of their toddler son.
Abdul Malik Rustam admitted he donned the headdress — which disguised his face — and wedge shoes when he killed his wife, Shaher Bano Shahdady, after she asked for a divorce.
Rustam, now 30, pleaded guilty on Valentine's Day to second-degree murder in the July 22, 2011, slaying. He will be sentenced Thursday by Justice John McMahon.
