Woman sentenced to death for burning daughter alive



A woman in Pakistan has been sentenced to death for burning her daughter alive in a so-called "honor killing" incident.
Parveen Bibi told a court in Lahore, Punjab that she killed her daughter "for bringing shame to her family," police spokeswoman Nabila Ghazanfar told CNN Tuesday.

Parveen's son Ahmer Rafique was sentenced to life in prison for his role in the crime.

Brutal killing

 

 Zeenat Rafique, 18, was strangled and set alight by her mother and brother in June 2016 after she eloped against their wishes. 

 
Rafique had been living with her new husband for a month before she visited her home in Lahore in the hopes of a reconciliation with her family.
But when Rafique arrived, her mother and brother tied her to a bed, poured gasoline and set her on fire, police said.
 
Parveen then turned herself over to the authorities but expressed no sorrow for actions.
