Prosecutors in “honor killings” case tell judge of hit list against witnesses

Texas – Witnesses in the case of a Montgomery County family charged in the 2012 deaths of two people in what authorities have described as “honor killings” were placed on a hit list and are afraid for their safety, Harris County prosecutors said Friday.

During a court hearing for 37-year-old Shmou Ali Alrawabdeh (picture), charged with murder and accused of assisting in the killing of Gelerah Bagherzadeh, Harris County assistant district attorneys told state District Judge Jan Krocker authorities had discovered a “hit list,” that included the names of witnesses in the case.

The names included Houston Police Department and Harris County Sheriff’s Office homicide investigators and a federal agent. The list also included relatives of Alrawabdeh’s son-in-law, Coty Beavers, who was shot to death about 11 months after Bagherzadeh.

Alrawabdeh’s husband, Ali Awad Mahmoud Irsan, 57, is charged with capital murder, accused of killing both Bagherzadeh and Beavers. Isran’s, 21-year-old son, Nasim Irsan, is also charged with murder, accused of assisting in Bagherzadeh’s death in January 2012. More
