A Pakistan-born British couple have been sentenced to at least 25 years behind bars for the honour killing of their own daughter, nine years after her death.
Shafilea Ahmed was killed because her parents said her western values were bringing shame on the family.
Iftikhar, 52, and Farzana Ahmed, 49, were both sentenced for life today for the murder of their daughter.
The 17-year-old went missing from her home in Warrington, Cheshire, in 2003 and her body was found in the River Kent in Cumbria six months later.
According to the BBC, Justice Roderick Evans said they would both serve a minimum of 25 years.
Justice Evans told them: "Your concern about being shamed in your community was greater than the love of your child."
She was suffocated with a plastic bag in front of the family's four other children, but for years her parents said they did not know how she had died.
In the months before her death, the court heard how Shafilea was 'terrified' of an arranged marriage in Pakistan.
The Ahmed's continually denied knowing anything about Shafilea's death, until one of their other daughter's came forward with the truth.
During the trial, Alisha Ahmed, 23, told the court how her parents repeatedly attacked and abused Shafilea.
She also said she saw both of her parents suffocate her sister with their bare hands.
Justice Evans also told the couple, "There is only one sentence that I can impose upon you and that is a sentence of imprisonment for life."
