Henriette Karra, a 17-year-old girl living in Ramle, Israel, was reportedly killed by her father over a relationship she had with a jailed Muslim man.
Karra's father, mother, and uncle were arrested for plotting the murder of the teenager, who was found on June 13 in the family hope with multiple stab wounds to the neck.
The Jerusalem Post reported on Sunday that the Christian family had largely opposed the teen's relationship with a Muslim man, who was incarcerated at the time of Karra's death.
According to reports, Karra was contemplating converting to Islam after the release of her boyfriend, who was jailed on an unspecified charge.
Leading up to her death, Karra reportedly sent text messages to her friends that read, "You won’t believe what they did to me ... They are sending people to kill me. They are searching for me in every possible place. You don’t understand what fear this is. I don’t believe I have the strength to stand on my feet and run away."
It was reported that Karra ran away to the home of her boyfriend's mother, but she was found by family and taken back to her own home.
The Daily Mail reported that local law enforcement had the house bugged in the time leading up to the death of Karra, and that the night before she was killed, her father — who had once been a suspect in drug dealing — was overheard telling Karra's mother, "Forget about her, let her go to hell. It’s not worth another shekel to even chase after her, she’s garbage. We need to whip her, throw her away like a dog and see how she does She’s already gone, I’m sick of her and you."
The day before she was killed, Karra told a family member that she was planning to convert to Islam.
According to the report, when Karra's father heard the news, and in a rage, stabbed his daughter three times in the neck.
Karra's father was arrested later that day.
Her father has plead not guilty, but will stand trial in Israel for the death of his daughter.
