The media does not name the honor killer. You know what that means.

He told the court: “It was a prolonged process. She must have felt the agony of death [coming].”
The woman allegedly died in the bedroom of the couple’s home after being stabbed 66 times.
The court heard that the husband could only remember being in the hallway with a knife in his hand.
According to Mr Malmenby the murdered woman had defensive wounds, suggesting she fought her alleged attacker.
The suspect in court
A psychiatric report said the 52-year-old man was of sound mind when he allegedly murdered his wife
Testifying in court, a neighbour of the pair said that desperate cries from a woman could be heard on the night in question.
Mr Malmenby said: “There are no extenuating circumstances. 66 stab wounds is not [in the heat of the moment].”
The man’s Defence Counsel, lawyer Serpil Güngör, said in her final statement that her client should be given a fixed-term sentence – not life.
A ruling is expected on February 10.
