Jordan charges five men in honor killing case
Jordan has charged five men with killing a female relative who allegedly had an affair, according to a court document obtained Friday. The 22-year-old woman's father, three uncles and a fifth relative were charged with premeditated murder Thursday by Jordan's criminal court, according to the indictment sheet made available to The Associated Press. The charge sheet said one of the uncles confessed to shooting his niece in the head six times for allegedly having an affair with a man she eventually married. The others were reportedly involved in planning the "honor crime," and all were also charged with illegal possession of weapons. The court did not release the names of the individuals involved in the case, and a trial date has not been set.
