WARREN, MI (WDIV/CNN) – A Michigan man shot and killed his stepdaughter because he felt she was not honoring her Muslim religion, according to police.
Rahim Alfetlawi told investigators that he shot Jessica Mokdad in the head Saturday, because he was upset about her new lifestyle.
“He indicated he wanted her back in Minnesota, so she could [practice] a more conservative lifestyle,” said Det. Cpl. Stephen Mills, with the Warren Police Department.
Alfetlawi allegedly left his home in Minnesota on Friday and stopped in Grand Blanc, MI, where Mokdad had been living with her biological father. But he was not able to find her.
“She wasn’t wearing a scarf anymore and was becoming more Westernized, more American,” Mills said.
