A married woman who wanted to protect the honor of her family, decided to kill her former lover after he refused to keep their affair quiet, according to police in Sweden.

Sundsvall police said that they have arrested the married woman and five of her family members including her husband for killing 23-year-old Ramin Sherzaj.

The Gavle District Court convicted all suspects of murder.

The married woman, her husband and three other family members were sentenced to life in prison while the sixth defendant got 14 years because he was under 21 years old at the time of the murder.

According to the police investigation, Sherzaj had an affair with the married woman for some time. When her husband found out about the affair, the woman broke up with her lover.

Sherzaj did not want to give up on the relationship, and published photos of them kissing on Facebook.

Sherzaj also sent intimate photos to his former lover’s husband and family members.

In order to protect the honor of the family, the married woman and her husband conspired with their family members to kidnap Sherzaj and kill him.
