Pakistani jailed for fatal stabbing over suspected affair

Shahzad Hussain had been sentenced to life in prison for murder, but the conviction was overturned

A Pakistani man who killed a man he suspected of having an affair with his wife has been jailed for nine years.

Shahzad Hussain, 35, who lived at Woodland Avenue, Mosney, Co Meath, stabbed his wife and her cousin at an apartment in Drogheda in January 2011.

Muhammad Arif, who was 32 and worked as a security guard for Tesco, died from his injuries.

Hussain was previously convicted of murder but this was quashed on appeal and he pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

Ms Justice Margaret Heneghan described it as a very distressing case but said the sentence had to be proportionate.

He was sentenced to life in prison for murder, but the conviction was overturned and when the case came for a retrial, he pleaded guilty to manslaughter.
