Glendale father to be arraigned in 'honor killing' case
by Dustin Gardiner
An Iraqi immigrant accused of slaying his own daughter for becoming "too Westernized" will be arraigned in Maricopa County Superior Court on Thursday morning.
Prosecutors say Faleh Hassan Almaleki, 48, of Glendale, conducted an "honor killing" on his own daughter because he felt she had shamed the family by not following traditional Iraqi or Muslim values.
The elder Almaleki is accused of using his Jeep Grand Cherokee to run down his daughter and another woman in a parking lot outside a state agency's office in Peoria.
