Dad Charged With 'Honor Killing' Daughter Won't Face Death Penalty in Arizona
Maricopa County prosecutors announced the decision Thursday in the case against 48-year-old Faleh Almaleki.
The Iraqi immigrant is accused of killing his daughter by using his Jeep Cherokee to run her down along with another woman in a Peoria parking lot Oct. 20 because she had become too Westernized.
Noor Almaleki later died of her injuries.
Faleh Almaleki is charged with first-degree murder, aggravated assault and two counts of leaving the scene of a serious accident.
He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
