A Muslim man from Jordan named Ali Irsan was found guilty for the 2012 murder of a young woman in Texas for converting to Christianity. The woman, Gelareh Bagherzadeh, was shot to death by Ali while she was driving into her parents’ family home.
According to friends Gelareh “was so sick of Islam that she converted to Christianity and was baptized at Second Baptist Church.”
Crime scene: car in which the victim was shot to death
She was chatting on the phone with a friend who told police he heard her scream before her car crashed into a garage.
Police say the assailant fired several times at close range through the glass of her passenger window.
The mystery deepened 11 months later, in November 2012, when the twin brother of Bagherzadeh’s boyfriend was found dead from multiple gunshot wounds inside his apartment.
