California attorney supports honor killing



Mourad Samaan was furious that his ex-wife wanted to hyphenate their daughter's last name, but the court system wasn't taking his side. So he killed Madeline Layla Samaan-Fay before taking his own life. According to Samaan's brother, Nabil Samaan, a licensed California attorney, this is an entirely appropriate reaction and the "right thing.... [H]opefully, the court will learn a little bit about justice." [KTXL via ATL]
