Thumbs down Father kills daughter; doubted virginity

AMMAN, Jordan - A Jordanian man fatally shot his 17-year-old daughter whom he suspected of having sex despite a medical exam that proved her chastity, an official said Thursday. The man surrendered to police hours after the killing, saying he had done it for family honor.

Weeks ago, the girl had returned home from a family protection clinic after doctors had vouched for her virginity and the father had signed a pledge not to harm her, the pathologist said on condition of anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the case.

The father shot the girl four times in the head on Tuesday. On Wednesday, an autopsy was performed that again showed "she was still a virgin," the pathologist said.

The crime is the first "honor killing" this year in Jordan, where many men consider sex out of wedlock to be an almost indelible stain on a family?s reputation. On average, about 20 women in the country are killed by their relatives in such cases each year. Women have been killed for simply dating.

In response, the government has abolished a section in the penal code that allowed for "honor" killers to get sentences as lenient as six months in prison. Instead, the government has told judges to consider honor killings on a par with other homicides, which in Jordan are punishable by up to 15 years in jail.

Queen Rania also has called for harsher punishment for such killers.

He should be beheaded. His little head that is, and made to go through the rest of his life without his dick. I'm sure the "honor" killings would stop.

sick and sad.

I bet that was a real "D'oh!" moment for him when the test came back negative.
