A Muslim man from Minnesota, who police say followed his step-daughter to Michigan to kill her in an “Honor Killing,” has been found guilty by a jury.
Rahim Alfetlawi, 47, was convicted Friday of first-degree premeditated murder by a Macomb County Circuit Court jury. He is scheduled to be sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole on November 15th.
Alfetlawi was charged in the death of his 20-year-old stepdaughter, Jessica Mokdad, at her grandmother’s home in Warren, MI, in April 2011.
A conservative Muslim, he told police the gun accidentally went off when he pulled it out, but prosecutors at his trial proved that he intentionally shot Mokdad in the head. He told police she felt the gun he carried for self-defense when she was hugging him, and that she tried to grab it, but when he tried to stop her the gun accidentally discharged.
Prosecutors have said the motive was rooted in the fact that Alfetlawi had been sexually abusing Mokdad and that she might go public with the assaults.
Anti-Islam activists said her death was an example of an Islamic “Honor Killing” because the step-daughter was “not following customary traditional Muslim ways.
The stepfather should be sentenced to the chair, not just life imprisonment. For now, he should definitely be sent to solitary confinement.
