She was stabbed to death by her estranged 37-year-old husband, who’s now in custody.

The man’s family say they’re worried about being the target of a so-called ‘honour killing’. Such retributions are a major problem in their home country.

One relative says it doesn’t matter that the murder was in Switzerland. They say they expect an attack from the wife’s family.

The police are giving no details on the victim’s family, except by saying they are being cared for.
