Parents guilty of Högsby 'honour' killing: court
by Rebecca Martin
The parents of the 23-year-old man previously convicted of the murder of 20-year–old Abbas Rezai, are guilty of the crime, according to Göta Court of Appeal, sentencing them both to ten years in prison.
Rezai was found dead in an apartment in Högsby in southern Sweden in November 2005.
Police revealed at the time that he had been scalded with hot oil, hit with a variety of objects, and repeatedly stabbed in the back and chest, with the majority of the wounds sustained after his death.
