35 year old Nasrin Abek, was allegedly stabbed to death by her husband, Amir Darbanou, 42, inside their apartment because he was upset she had converted to Christianity. Darbanou was charged with murder after his wife’s body was found inside their apartment in Sydney, yesterday.
Darbanou, from Iran, was allegedly enraged that Abek had recently converted to Christianity and killed her in a frenzied knife attack on Wednesday night, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.
Darbanou had allegedly called his father-in-law in Iran to tell him that Abek was dead. Police said there was no known history of domestic violence between the couple, who had been living in Australia for four years.
