capital murder: The Harris County jury deliberated for just 35 minutes after five weeks of testimony before reaching the verdict in Houston, according to The Chronicle Herald. The same jury deliberated about nine hours before sentencing him to death for the killings, which occurred about 11 months apart. Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan was found guilty of capital murder last month in the 2012 fatal shootings of his son-in-law, Coty Beavers, and his daughter's friend, Gelareh Bagherzadeh. When the jury's punishment verdict was announced, Irsan slumped slightly. Prosecutors alleged that Irsan, a 60-year-old conservative Muslim, became enraged after his daughter married Beavers, a 28-year-old Christian, and converted to Christianity. Families of the victims cried, hugged and took pictures together after Irsan was led out of the courtroom. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
