Charges against Muhammed Parvez were upgraded from second-degree murder to first-degree murder when he appeared in court Tuesday.
The 57-year-old was arrested last December after he called police and said he killed his 16-year-old daughter.
The teen’s friends said the girl and her father had been arguing about wearing a hijab, a traditional Muslim scarf that covers the head and shoulders.
The girl’s 26-year old brother also faces charges for obstructing the police.
God rest her soul.
