TEXAS: Muslim migrant gets DEATH penalty for MULTIPLE HONOR MURDERS

A Jordanian immigrant was sentenced to death on Tuesday after being convicted in what prosecutors described as the honor killings of his daughter’s American husband and an Iranian women’s rights activist in Texas.

Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan was found guilty of capital murder last month in the 2012 fatal shootings of his son-in-law, Coty Beavers, and his daughter’s best friend, Gelareh Bagherzadeh.

Jurors in Houston deliberated for just 35 minutes – after five weeks of testimony – before reaching the verdict , and the sentencing phase of the trial took another two weeks.

Prosecutors say the 60-year-old conservative Muslim became enraged after his daughter, Nesreen Irsan, married Beavers, a 28-year-old Christian, and converted to Christianity.

Investigators said Bagherzadeh had encouraged Nesreen Irsan to marry Beavers.
