Unnamed woman

An unnamed Moroccan woman was strangled to death by her son, who could not live with the shame of his mother living with a man to whom she was not married. According to reports, Mohammed`s parents had divorced years ago. His father had remarried shortly, and conceived a son from his second marriage. His mother also entered a commited consensual relationship with a man, and begot a child with him. Yet her son would not accept the relationship, because technically it was not a marriage. He asked her repeatedly to break it off. When she refused, he decided to kill her. He plotted for two weeks and eventually came to stay with his mother. One morning, when his half sister was already at school, he strangled his mother to death with an electric cable, and fled the scene, later confessing to the crime.
