Muslim woman in Pennsyvlania admits killing husband over his 2nd wife
A Muslim woman pleaded guilty Friday to third-degree murder for killing her bigamist husband in August, hours before he was to leave for Morocco to visit his new, second wife.
Myra Morton, 48, was upset about the marriage and her husband's plans to have children with the younger woman, authorities say. She admitted shooting her husband Jereleigh Morton, 47, twice in the head while he slept, and initially blamed an intruder.
She faces from five to 20 years in prison when she is sentenced, defense lawyer Brian McMonagle said.
"I don't think there's any question in anybody's mind that the act was intentional," McMonagle said. "We have always maintained that it was based on a lot of passion, and it was caused by the emotional turmoil that she was going through."
The Mortons converted to Islam about 20 years ago. Jereleigh Morton met his second wife, 37-year-old Zahra Toural, last year on the Internet, prosecutors said. Myra Morton traveled to Morocco to meet Toural and bless the marriage, but police say she grew to resent the arrangement.
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh the GLORIOUS ISLAM, THE RELIGION OF PEACE & the stupidity of a woman that converted to the curse of mankind...
