Honour killing in Ontario....
I hate reading these sort of stories...
In his orange turban and burgundy tracksuit, Kamikar Singh Dhillon stood and pleaded guilty Friday to stabbing his daughter-in-law to death in a reprehensible honour killing.
"Just sorry," the murderer murmured through a Punjabi interpreter when asked if he had anything to say.
But Dhillon, 48, hardly appeared sorry at all.
In fact, after the New Year's Day murder in 2009, the unrepentant Dhillon insisted he was justified in taking the life of 22-year-old Amandeep Dhillon because he believed she was going to leave his son for another man.
"He maintained throughout all his interviews that her pending separation from her husband would disgrace the family name, which justified killing her," Crown attorney Steve Sherriff told the court in an agreed statement of facts.
"The defendant repeatedly told the police during the same videotaped interview that under these circumstances he had done the right thing by killing the deceased."
Even in death, her killer sought to malign her. Not only was there no evidence Amandeep was having an affair, he also claimed the young mother offered him sex but he'd turned her down.
"There is no evidence to support this assertion," court heard.
