A Pakistani immigrant killed his wife in their New York apartment because she made him the wrong dinner - but his lawyer claims that's just his culture
Noor Hussein, 75, believed he had the right to discipline 66-year-old Nazar at their apartment in Brooklyn, New York, his defense said. But prosecutors claim that he murdered her because she had made the mistake of cooking him a vegetarian meal made of lentils instead of goat meat. Defense attorney Julie Clark said that Hussein admitted beating his wife but said that in his home country of Pakistan, beating your wife is customary.
