Three men charged with honor killing in Jordan

Jordan's criminal prosecutor charged three men with premeditated murder Sunday for allegedly killing a female relative and her boyfriend to restore their family's honor, said a judicial official.


The brother of the 19-year-old woman allegedly shot her and her 30-year-old Arab boyfriend with the help of his two cousins, according to the prosecutor's charge sheet, which was made available to The Associated Press by a court official on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media.
