Mohammedan who slaughtered his 2 daughters in Houston ‘honor killings’ tells jury he treated them like ‘like princesses”

A Jordanian immigrant convicted in a pair of “honor killings” told jurors on Friday that he treated his daughters “like princesses” and constantly gave other people gifts, an attempt to avoid the death penalty for separate 2012 slayings of his son-in-law and his daughter’s best friend.

“I would buy a lot of gifts. I love to make people smile,” said Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan, as he testified in his own defense for the second time. “Put a smile on people’s faces.”
