One of the cases I have been following here in Texas outraged me when it initially hit the headlines.
Yaser Said killed his two daughters in 2008 in an “honor killing.”
Sadly, the prosecutor did not go for the death penalty, so he will only face life in prison.
Said killed his two daughters, 18-year-old Amina Said and 17-year-old Sarah Said.
Both were found shot to death only days after the mother took them away from the home to try to protect them from him.
Sarah had been shot nine times, and Amina was shot twice.
He has denied killing the girls since his arrest in 2020.
The girls had rejected their father’s Egyptian culture and had told a teacher in 2007 they did not want arranged marriages and feared for their lives, stating that their father had “made our lives a nightmare.”
The email predicted, “He will, without any drama nor doubt, kill us.”
Said was arrested in August 2020 in Justin, TX, just outside of Dallas.
Both his son and brother were charged for helping him evade arrest.
