Man who stabbed his wife to death & smoked a cigarette and posted on Facebook & # 39; before calling Triple Zero – while the court hears that he sees Islamic punishments for infidelity
- Shahab Ahmed has not pleaded guilty of murdering his five-year-old wife
- Ahmed & # 39; posted on Facebook and smoked a cigarette & # 39; after the attack
- She was found dead in the apartment and had 14 stab wounds
- He had investigated & # 39; Islamic penalties for infidelity & # 39; for her murder
A man who killed his wife because she was having an affair had previously investigated ways to punish her for infidelity, a court heard.
Shahab Ahmed pleaded not guilty of killing his five-and-a-half year wife, Khondkar Faihi Elahi, in their Parramatta unit in February 2017.
Supreme Court heard how Ahmed demanded to see his wife's cell phone on February 18, dragging her through the house before she came across recent messages and reached for a knife in the kitchen.
It is then assumed that he posted & # 39; on Facebook and smoked a cigarette & # 39; before calling emergency services.
She was found dead in the apartment and had 14 stab wounds.

Judge Monika Schmidt was told & he intended to kill & # 39 ;.
Ahmed, 35, entered a plea of guilty of manslaughter that was not accepted by the Crown.
According to Islam, prior to the attack, Ahmed had asked a number of questions about & # 39; the different punishments & # 39; because of unfaithfulness, and & # 39; he had set his sights on punishing his wife & # 39 ;, heard the court.
Defense lawyer Avni Djemal said Ahmed accepted legal and moral responsibility for the death of his wife.
& # 39; The case of the accused is that at the time … he was substantially harmed by depression, & # 39; said Mr. Djemal.
Ahmed & # 39; s lawyer said the couple was online and it was & # 39; not a marriage by appointment, it was a marriage of love & # 39;
Ahmed would be furious about Mrs. Elahi's betrayal after having a relationship with one of their mutual friends.
During the Ahmed exclusive case on Tuesday, Omar Khan admitted that he had an affair with Mrs. Elahi from July 2015.
Mr. Khan said he had known Ahmed since 1999 and that the two men and their wives had built a strong friendship – which the couples in Bangladesh saw together on vacation.
He got a job from Mrs. Elahi, but was visited by Ahmed at work in April 2015 and accused of causing marital problems.
De Kroon says that Ahmed was currently expressing concern to his doctor of infidelity between his wife and Mr. Khan.
Prosecutor Sean Hughes said: & There was kisses. Was it passionate about kissing? & # 39;

On February 18, Ahmed District Court heard that he wanted to see his wife's cell phone, drag her through the house before she came across recent messages and went to a knife in the kitchen.
& # 39; That's right, but not always, especially when we're in public places, & # 39; Mr. Khan replied.
He said she & # 39; quite often & # 39; holding hands and exchanging gifts but not having sexual intercourse.
Mr. Khan said on Tuesday that he received a call from Ahmed in September 2016, in which he stated: & I hope you are happy. You can come by. I'm leaving home. & # 39;
Ahmed & # 39; s lawyer said the couple met online and it was & # 39; not a marriage by appointment, it was a marriage of love & # 39 ;.
He also said that Ahmed & # 39; s reaction to the night of the stabbing & # 39; outside the character & # 39; used to be.
The accused's chief, Irfan Ali, testified that in the days before the incident, Ahmed said his wife wanted a divorce, but & # 39; he didn't want & # 39 ;.
The test continues.
