England: Man admits stabbing to death wife he married in an arranged marriage in Pakistan

This is Lancashire:

A JILTED husband today admitted stabbing his estranged wife to death after she spurned his hopes of a reconciliation.

Zameer Ahmed, 25, pleaded guilty to murdering 23-year-old Nazia Ahmed in a frenzied attack at her home in Shear Bank Road, Blackburn, last June.

He was due to be sentenced later today.

During the attack he stabbed her six times before discarding two knives and going on the run for nine days.

At Manchester Crown Court, Judge Michael Henshell agreed to the prosecution's request to leave a second charge of wounding Nazia's sister Shazia with intent to lie on file.

Ahmed and Nazia married in 2001 in an arranged marriage in Pakistan before Zameer came to live in the UK.

The court heard how Ahmed admitted knifing Nazia in the chest, back, neck and stomach to the owner of a restaurant in Scotland where he gained employment while being on the run.

The court was told how Zameer claimed he was not happy with how his mother-in-law treated him and claimed his wife had been hanging around boys.

"The court was told how Zameer claimed he was not happy with how his mother-in-law treated him and claimed his wife had been hanging around boys."

Well, then of course she deserved to die. It is obvious. I read the article rather quickly and I thought he didn't have a good reason to stab his wife to death. The whole "feeling bad" so he killed her thing cleared that all up for me. What a fucking barbarian. In a more civilized day he would have been shot in the street and buried wrapped in a pigskin instead of wasting time and money on a trial.

One of the problems with arranged marriages is that it allows deranged idiots like this to get married and breed.
