Police officer Imtiaz Ali says the parents confessed to killing the girl a day earlier because they believed she had sullied the family’s honour.

He said Friday that an autopsy confirmed that the girl died of acid burns.

Honour killings are widespread in Pakistan, where scores of women are murdered every year for marriages or relationships not approved by their families.
