CBC News

A so-called honour-killingexpert is expected to testify Monday at the canal deaths trial in Kingston, Ont.

Shahrzad Mojab is a University of Toronto professor.

Mohammad Shafia, 58, an Afghan businessman, his wife Tooba Yahya, 41, and their son Hamed, 20, are accused of killing four female family members. All of them have pleaded not guilty to four counts each of first-degree murder.

In 2009, three Shafia sisters, Sahar, 17, Zainab, 19, and Geeti, 13, along with Mohammed Shafia’s first wife, Rona Amir Mohammad, 52, were found dead in a submerged black Nissan Sentra in a canal just outside Kingston.
