Tehran, Iran, Oct. 18 – An Iranian woman was sentenced to execution in the Iranian capital on Monday, a state-run daily reported on Tuesday.

The woman, only identified by her first name Raheleh, was found guilty of murdering her husband, whom she had accused of having an affair with a younger woman, the daily Javan wrote.

Raheleh had said that she was threatened by her abusive husband each time she asked him to end his affair. She said that she had never meant to kill her husband, but just “teach him a lesson”.

Hojjatoleslam Kouh Kamarei, the Islamic cleric who presided over the case, sentenced Raheleh to execution on Monday.

Iran has stepped up execution sentences for women since the rise to power of hard-line Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
