Horrific case out of Dallas where a Muslim immigrant was found guilty of murdering his two teenage daughters in what officials say was “honor killings”.
Prosecutors said Said, a native of Egypt, was angry that his daughters were dating and that the boys were not Muslim.
“It took jurors about three hours to convict Said for the deaths of his daughters Amina and Sarah in 2008.
Judge Chika Anyiam sentenced Said to life in prison without the possibility of parole.”
Said’s ex-wife, Patricia Owens, read the victim impact statement, telling him:
"Yaser Said, you're a devil. You murdered your girls.
I hope somebody gets their hands on you and hurt you and do everything you ever did to anybody. That's counting the nine bullets you put in Sarah. Nine. And she called 911. Amina two bullets in the heart…
You deserve to die now, not in prison. You took my life. You took my family all in one night. You can keep those evil eyes glaring — just glare away — because this is going to be the last time that you see me."
