MISSISSAUGA, Ont. – A 57-year-old man from Mississauga, Ont., has been charged with murder after his 16-year-old daughter died overnight.
Aqsa Parvez was rushed to hospital Monday morning in critical condition after a man made a 911 call in which he allegedly said he killed his daughter.
The teenager died in hospital late Monday night.
Peel Regional Police have charged her father, Muhammad Parvez, 57, with murder – a specific degree will be determined later.
He made a brief court appearance Tuesday morning and was remanded in custody pending another court appearance Wednesday.
Aqsa Parvez’s friends have said she had been arguing with her devout Muslim family for months over her reluctance to wear a hijab.
