Man jailed for killing sister

A Jordanian on death row for the murder of his married sister who used her mobile too often in an apparent ‘honour killing’ has had his term commuted to 10 years in jail, a judicial official said on Monday: the defendant said ‘he stabbed his sister, who was in her 40s, in the stomach, back and chest because she frequently talked over her mobile phone and allegedly had suspicious behaviour,’ said the official, on condition of anonymity: the court reduced the sentence on Sunday after the family dropped all legal claims against him, the official said.
