Three members of an Afghan immigrant  have been convicted of first

degree murder and sentenced to life in prison after the “honour killings” of four female in Canada. Mohammed Shafia’s three  daughters and his first wife from a polygamous marriage were found dead in their car in the Rideau

Canal in the summer of 2009. In addition to damage on the family’s vehicles, wiretapped conversations

were used as evidence to convict Shafia, his second wife Tooba, and their 21-year-old son, Hamed. The

Westernized teens were  behaving in ways that “dishonoured” the family.

The judge called the crimes “despicable” after announcing the  verdict.

The Shafia trial had gained international attention, especially in the Muslim community. During the three

month trial, over 100 Islamic leaders across Canada spoke out against honour killings and signed a

National Call to Eradicate Domestic Violence.
