Honour kill girl, 15, 'was pregnant': Muslim father gets life for murdering daughter who fell in love with the wrong man
by Lucy Ballinger
A schoolgirl believed to be pregnant was murdered by her 'psychotic' father in an honour killing after police repeatedly ignored her pleas for help.
Mehmet Goren, 49, a bully who terrified his Turkish family, was yesterday found guilty at the Old Bailey of murdering his 15-year-old daughter Tulay after she started a relationship with Halil Unal, man from a different Muslim sect.
Yesterday it emerged that Tulay had come into contact with the police seven times in the two months before she died.
Senior officers admitted that 'tell-tale signs' had been ignored and said lessons would be learnt.
