Cabby who ordered revenge murders gets life in prison
by Kathleen Culliton, Jennifer Bain and Laura Italiano
A cabby who ordered a pair of revenge murders in Pakistan — all because his young daughter had left her loveless arranged marriage there — has been sentenced to life in prison.
Mohammad Choudhry, 61, staggered as he rose to his feet and was led out of Brooklyn federal court to begin serving his sentence, the most severe he could get by law.
"You were an egomaniacal force who revealed yourself to be self-absorbed in your merciless pursuit of evil," Judge William Kuntz told the cabby in throwing away the key.
