Jury hears 'sister saw parents commit murder'

A court has heard that the sister of a Cheshire schoolgirl who went missing in 2003 saw their parents kill her.

Iftikhar Ahmed, 52 and Farzana Ahmed, 49, of Warrington, deny the murder of 17-year-old Shafilea, whose remains were found in Cumbria in February 2004.

The prosecution allege Mr and Mrs Ahmed killed their daughter because she had brought shame on the family.

Judith Moritz reports.
