Iranian child bride to be killed for killing 'abusive' husband

Zeinab Sokian could be weeks away from being hanged for murder. 
She is being prosecuted for murdering her husband whom she married when she was only 15 years but killed when she was 17.
The 2012 murder was reported to be related to domestic violence/abuse she suffered in the hand of the deceased.

The death sentence was however delayed because she was pregnant with another inmate's baby whom she married in jail.
She gave birth to a still born on Friday, September 30, 2016 at Euromieh central prison.

*It's against the Iranian law to execute pregnant women*
