Mohammad Shafia, 58, his wife Tooba Yahya, 42, and their son Hamed, 21, have been found guilty of four counts each of first-degree murder.
Their bodies were found June 30, 2009, in a car submerged in a canal in Kingston, Ont., where the family had stopped for the night on their way home from Niagara Falls, Ont.
The Crown theory was that Shafia, Yahya and Hamed drowned the four victims elsewhere on the site, placed their bodies in the car, then pushed it into the canal with the family's other vehicle.
The defence had said it was an accident, that they had gone for a joy ride with Zainab driving and accidentally plunged into the canal with Hamed watching, although he didn't call police. (Source)

Mohammad Shafia, Tooba Yahya, and Hamed Shafia Found Guilty of First Degree Murder in Mass "Honor" Killings
Mohammad Shafia, along with one of his wives and his son, murdered three daughters and a second wife for "betraying Islam." The three defendants have just been found guilty of first-degree murder. I'm wondering if CAIR will cry "Islamophobia" at this one.
