Honour Killing: She was stabbed over 100 times with two different knives and a pair of scissors.

An 8 Year sentence, in Sweden. "This is an incredibly harsh sentence. My client is in shock.

The 17-year-old boy from southern Sweden who stabbed his sister to death in April was sentenced to eight years in prison on Tuesday for what the court referred to as an "honour killing".

The sister had previously claimed she was forcibly married off at age 15 and raped.
