    I went to school with Cory and Coty Beavers and was much more friends with Coty. It was devastating to hear of his murder and I personally believe that her murder and his were orchestrated by her family being angry about her being with Christians and unapproved relationship with a Christian. There has been a lot more recent information released on case and I will try to get verified so that I can share that. It’s literally her ENTIRE family in on it. Including siblings. It’s horrific.
    Hopefully we will get further answers to what happened and Coty and this young woman can find peace in their rest ::crying::

    Wow, AlwaysHopeToHelp, I came over here when you mentioned this on Lucas' thread... I'm so sorry. What a case. I just read all of the posts here, but I think I need to go back and read them again or read other ones to fully understand.

    Houston father accused in honor killings begins death penalty trial

    "...The trial, before state District Judge Jan Krocker, is expected to last six to eight weeks....

    To secure a death sentence, special prosecutors Anna Emmons, Jonathan Stephenson, and Marie Ann Primm will have to prove the killings, almost a year apart, were part of the same criminal scheme.

    In Texas, killing two people in furtherance of the same criminal enterprise is a capital crime. Two slayings by the same person with divergent reasons would be two murder charges."

    Father in Houston death penalty “honor killings” trial claimed daughter stole anthrax (with clip)

    "Ali Irsan, who is on trial for capital murder for a pair of “honor killings,” , told police in 2011 that his adult daughter was trying to poison him with anthrax stolen from Houston’s MD Anderson hospital where she worked, witnesses are expected to say Wednesday.

    The testimony, in the third day of Irsan's death penalty trial, is being brought in by prosecutors trying to show that the 60-year-old Jordanian-American repeatedly called the police on his daughter with false stories...."

    Iranian activist’s last words repeated in capital murder trial over pair of ‘honor killings’ in Houston area

    June 27, 2018

    "A former boyfriend who heard the last words of a slain Iranian activist and medical student while on a cellphone call as she was shot to death in Houston told jurors Wednesday about the chilling conversation....

    “She said, ‘He’s just standing there, not moving’ then she said, ‘Honey! Honey!’” 40-year-old Robeen Bandar testified Wednesday. “She wanted to tell me something but couldn’t. Then the phone dropped.”

    Bandar, who dated Bagherzadeh a year before her death, choked up as he testified in the third day of Irsan’s trial, a case that shocked Houston and has seen international news coverage. The young activist was the best friend of Irsan’s daughter....

    The trial, in state District Judge Jan Krocker’s court, is expected to last six to eight weeks."

    Testimony: Suspect in ‘honor killings’ pulled over for speeding shortly after first slaying

    June 29, 2018

    "...A series of administrative staffers from MD Anderson Cancer Center, where two of the defendant’s daughters and the murder victim attended school, also testified that Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan’s conduct stood out as unusual because he asked to look at classrooms.

    The jury Friday watched dashcam footage of the traffic stop, taken at approximately 12:30 a.m. Jan. 16, 2012, less than an hour after the homicide. A DPS trooper assigned to make DWI arrests testified that Irsan was racing north of Houston on Interstate 45 at 79 mph with his wife and son when he pulled him over. Irsan said he was speeding because he was diabetic and needed to buy a drink, presumably to address his low blood sugar, the trooper said....

    Earlier in the day, a friend of the victim’s testified about the political protests she helped organize in Houston with Bagherzadeh to raise awareness about what they saw as a rigged election in Iran in 2009...."
