Man who wore 'burka' sentenced in estranged wife's murder
by Sam Pazzano
A Muslim man who wore a burka and women's shoes before he strangled his estranged wife was sentenced Wednesday to life imprisonment with no chance of parole for 17 years.
Justice John McMahon passed the sentence for second-degree murder against Abdul Malik Rustam, who admitted he donned the headdress — which disguised his face — and wedge shoes when he killed his 21-year-old wife, Shaher Bano Shahdady, after she asked for a divorce.
Rustam left their almost two-year-old son abandoned with his mother's body for 15 hours before she was discovered in her Scarborough apartment.
