See Child-bride Who Killed Her Abusive Husband After She was Forced Into Marriage as a Child (Photo)


A woman that was forced into a marriage as a little girl who later killed her abusive husband could be hanged within weeks.
The Iranian child bride, Zeinab Sokian was sentenced to death for the 2012 murder of her husband, when she was just 17. Zeinab married another prisoner while in jail and fell pregnant, and as Iranian law prevents pregnant women from being executed her death sentence was delayed.
Revealing more details, Dailymail revealed that on September 30 she gave birth to a stillborn child in Euromieh central prison in northern Iran, meaning she could now be put to death within weeks.
Zeinab, who hails from a small village in northern Iran, was just 15 when she married her first husband.
Under Iranian law girls can marry at 13-years-old and boys at 15, although international human rights organisations say both parties in a marriage should be aged 18 or over.
During her trial, Zeinab claimed that her husband frequently beat and abused her, a source told Human Rights Watch. However, her claims were dismissed by the court.
The human rights organisation says that Zeinab was informed by authorities this week her execution could take place in the coming weeks.
