Muslim with 'medieval' attitudes towards his care assistant wife who he stabbed to death because she was looking after men is jailed for 20 years

A devout Muslim man who displayed 'medieval' attitudes towards women has been jailed for stabbing to death his care worker wife because she looked after men.

Imran Khan, 38, from Cheadle, Greater Manchester, had sent spouse Nasreen a series of text messages leading up to her death claiming she was contravening Islam.

In one message he wrote: 'If you go to men's houses and lie to me I get angry. If you play games I get angry.

Later he stabbed her to death with a kitchen knife in a frenzied attack during a furious row at the couple's home they shared with their three children.

And when police turned up at the scene after the attack, Khan told an officer: 'Never get an arranged marriage bro.'

The judge also dismissed that the murder was a result of a culture clash as he said both Khan's parents and sister were supportive of Mrs Khan's choice of job. [Daily Mail] Read more
