A jealous man killed his wife in front of many horrified friends, family members and other onlookers.
The man stabbed his wife to death in a jealous fit rage in the Bronx, outside a relative’s home.
According to his mother, Nazir Khan was very much in love with his 23-year-old wife, and was devastated when he caught her cheating.
After the couple had an argument, the woman, Amarita Khan, left their home in Queens, with their two daughters and spend the night with a family member.
During the day, she joined family and friends at a block party. Around 6:00 p.m., her husband went to look for her. He came up from behind her and stuck a knife in her chest in front of 30 horrified onlookers, police said.
The mother of the alleged murderer, Nafeeza Khan, could not believe her son had done this saying: “he loved her very much.”
She also said that her son caught his wife cheating with another man. Nazir reportedly worked as a fuel supervisor for an airline based at LaGuardia Airport.
“I was shocked. I never thought he was capable of this. He is a quiet guy, a good guy. No smoking, no drinking, just always working,” said Nafeeza.
The couple has two daughters, ages 2 and 5. They are now with their maternal grandparents.
