by Jaya Narain
The parents of suspected honour killing victim Shafilea Ahmed have been charged with their daughter's murder – eight years after she disappeared.
Shafilea, 17, went missing from her home in September 2003 after complaining that her parents were trying to force her into an arranged marriage.
A massive hunt was launched for the bright A-level student who had dreamed of becoming a lawyer.
Her decomposed body was found in February 2004, hidden near a river in the Lake District.
