Nazish's murder has left behind 3 & 5yr old Sons to grow up without their Mother in their lives
Nazish, of East Boston and Boonton, New Jersey, was murdered in a plot arranged by her husband, Kashif Parvaiz, 26, and Antoinette Stephen, 26.
While visiting with family in NJ, Noorani was walking to a relative’s house with her 3 year old son and husband. Noorani was shot, Parvaiz was wounded, and the child was physically unharmed.
Parvaiz originally told police that he and his wife were attacked by a group of men shouting ethnic slurs and calling them terrorists. Inconsistencies in the account of the attack raised suspicions among investigators. Parvaiz later admitted he played a role in the death of his wife.
Police reports and family comments suggest that Noorani did not feel safe in the relationship. Noorani had send a text message to her brother stating Parvaiz wants to kill her.
Parvaiz and Stephen have been charged with murder, conspiracy, and weapons charges. Parvaiz is also charged with child endangerment. He is being held on $1 million bail. Stephen is awaiting extradition and being held on $5 million bail.
