I interviewed him long distance the police were that interested there could be further harm brought to her.
Correct and had this on -- the family.
I tried to convince the mother it's a bit this interest or the father of two -- random.
We received absolutely no assistance.
Cooperation help in anyway from an independent members in this investigation while more lies unconscious.

Four days after the hit and run his sister clinging to life.
Ali alma Lackey gave an interview to the local news and seemed to defend what his father did to -- Capacity is.
She's been going on her way being disrespectful.
Different cultures different values.
One thing two -- and -- -- make sense to -- -- for.
He -- you can live in all outward appearances as an American.
But something deep inside is so profoundly different.
That we would -- it is legitimate.
To kill a gal -- dishonest -- culture.
Marc Stein is an author and syndicated columnist based in New Hampshire.
He writes in a no holds barred fashion about what he sees as the spread of radical Islam and the decline of the west.
He says honor killings in America are a sign of both.
This isn't just one isolated.
And this is something that is now happening.
Wins distressing frequency.
In the -- of the west and while it's -- into Germany and Scandinavia.
The United Kingdom Canada and to the United States.
Meanwhile the search for -- on the -- took an international turn I got a new round of the phone records so for loss on.
Two calls -- -- United Kingdom.
Next police catch up with follow on -- Lackey and put him through a grueling interrogation.
Did he confessed to an honor killing.
That's coming up.
As part of this report we tried to interview nor on the -- -- -- her mother brother cousin.
Anyone who could tell us what she was like the things that made her happy.
Heard -- aspirations.
No one would talk to us.
Investigators tell us one way -- violence differs some other kinds of domestic violence.
Is -- the family often sides with the attacker.
Not his victim.
In Peoria Arizona police claim that's what happened as they try to capture follow -- a Lackey who had fled to Europe.
By way of Mexico.
Two or three days in no -- He took a boss from Nogales to -- CEO he took a point from -- CO2.
From Mexico City.
He flew to London.
And when they ran album like he's passport they found an American -- for his arrest.
Within days he was flying back to the US accompanied by federal marshals -- -- he landed in Atlanta.
Peoria Arizona police detectives Chris -- and his partner Jeff Paulson were there we.
The interrogated him in this room at the airport.
Here -- -- Okay this case wasn't a whodunit my biggest interest -- to find out why that.
And to try and get alma elected he confessed to purposely running down nor.
And the mall I think your -- try and do the right thing.
-- traveling -- -- kids can buy everything else.
-- I understand what happens more often is that.
Good people like yourself get into -- situation.
And Porsche will -- In Iowa.
And make -- very -- And I know.
This was not a back.
It didn't help a -- console.
I will not believe you don't lose control your car -- you can leave your cheap apple and you felt that.
I won't -- until well I don't know what.
When we first started talking -- he said it was just an accident.
-- we didn't believe them at all.
And so bolts and played good cop to -- -- ban re trying to do -- trying to scare them.
How much fun got Michael ware trying to kill -- re trying to hit him.
-- -- whistleblower.
On what was all why restructured.
The I don't know what attracted the mental problem.
And that hurt.
Only if plan.
Then slowly raised the question.
I think that north truck program is that sorry -- This is a way.
To restore some of that army.
-- -- we'll have him he told he wanted to ever told him to hear you tell me in here all -- why.
He conceded that that maybe I tried to scare then he conceded that.
You know he didn't mean to to -- them so -- -- we moved from an accident to something that he.
Intended to do.
Which would later play a big role -- animal like he's trial.
Lasted for two hours after it was over animal like he waived extradition.
And was put on a plane.
To Phoenix meanwhile -- hum alma Lackey was allowed to visit her daughter to war with hospital security present.
On November 2 2009.
Doctors for announced -- clinically brain -- With her mother's consent.
Nor was pulled off life support.
But comparable recruitment and monitored while in this Arizona jail finalized -- a -- made a series of phone calls to his white -- on.
Husband and wife were told their conversations were being recorded.
Even still those tapes reinforced investigators believe that they were dealing with an honor to.
Sure mark -- he -- -- at honors here.
He's trying cultured -- in changes and I saw someone from the street.
Try to give -- chance.
Which called no results.
You're -- You know -- to spend that neither the mother of all the time of the things they did anything wrong to -- amount.
Did you bury her we -- did today -- She is comfortable now Liam still and yes you -- remain hanky and yes she is a relaxed and I used to dying.
They think nor Al-Maliki is -- wolf.
I'm in Canada it's.
Dispatch that by how follow up.
Than living as an American woman.
She did not seek the right path that you -- Indiana.
I know -- -- and nobody's like you -- They also talked about follows legal defense.
And who -- this lawyer.
What is his name -- received from.
Sierra will know not an easy to do -- -- yes.
Check with Arabs as well if there is -- loophole in the subject.
To land tribalism -- -- him.
The Jews knows its they have a simulated and -- to understand that this is illegally sticks -- and that it's all about the loop hole.
-- if there is a loophole and I hope we can see that you have and what do you column -- -- problem.
No I didn't tell them.
Does that yes.
Tell my -- and -- -- unknown risks I MR was suffering from this condition.
Tell them I got tired than I and I OK this will help a great deal okay.
At one point Al-Maliki who came into the US after Seeking Asylum.
Spoke as though key was America's.
I tell you let them protest as Brothers all Terry posters in front of -- and -- signs about directions on an -- whatever I don't know.
And such signs like I'm not a criminal court I didn't kill someone from the streets.
Of its assaults I'm not -- and I'm not.
-- you now understand.
And an Iraqi without honor is nothing.
Yes do you think this was an honor killing.
I don't think -- Mohammed -- shark away you remember is the former Arizona care chairman.
Who met with follow on the like -- wife and son right after he ran his daughter down I think he wanted to scare her.
It because he was angry because it's a moment of rage and shark away does concede that honor killings do occur.
In tribal cultures throughout the Islamic world.
But he denies there were a big problem here in America these very isolated incident that.
-- it had -- -- then is like every other crime.
So how does -- shark away explain all that talk about honor.
In those jailhouse phone calls between mr.
Obama Lackey I think the thought.
If -- go live on a killing that might give out of jail like would be -- back home.
So they thought the court should be easier on them because of a culture from another part of the world.
Yes we have seen some of the places that they would be more lenient if if it is an.
On -- or something like that but that that's quite stunning in itself to think that somebody in America could think they can get a lighter sentence because.
They labeled it an honor killing people just -- -- things every day.
But what would a jury thank.
A question of -- continues.
After the break.
Was the death of nor -- Lackey a murder.
Dictated by the demands for -- by -- Iraqi immigrant father or was this all just an accident.
An Arizona jury would be asked to decide.
By a prosecutor.
Intent on sending a message far beyond that courtroom.
Can a human being kills their own daughter.
-- Laura record has prosecuted her share of murder cases.
But this one was different from the beginning you've labeled this an honor can the defendant labeled it an honor killing.
If you look at his jail calls if you look at what.
His sons and.
And record intended to make the jury confront that issue.
In her mind record would succeed only if the jury returned a verdict of first degree murder that meant the killing was premeditated.
Premeditated by a man driven by a sense of shame and dishonor.
Even if the jury convicted alma Lackey on the less serious charge of second degree murder.
Or even manslaughter.
It would be a devastating loss for record and a victory for Al-Maliki and his public defenders.
Ladies and gentlemen.
One of the founding fathers of this country Thompson Thomas Jefferson.
Has been quoted as saying.
Nobody can acquire honor by doing what is wrong.
January 24 2011.
Prosecutor record made her opening argument to the jury as alma Lackey the accused to listen to an Arabic translation.
This is a case about a man.
Who committed these terrific and -- so -- crimes.
All in the name of hits sense.
-- By presenting the case as an honor killing.
Record arguably made the job easier for the defense team.
This is not really.
If they could convince even one member of the jury to reject that motive.
Alma lucky would almost certainly be acquitted of first degree murder and avoid a life sentence.
It's for an -- Iraqi man.
-- no longer be called first name when he had a child but to take an eight there I have.
With -- -- sobbing in the background one of his attorneys Elizabeth -- told the jury that what happened in the DES parking lot.
Was an accident.
We -- anything you know he hits occur goes on in drug coverage for you look out.
Nor -- his -- in the a lot of.
Two vastly different accounts of what happened who would the jury believe.
First witness was Charles Cooper who worked at the welfare office and says -- -- -- -- Rundown nor and -- mall and then drive off.
Standing in front of a blown up picture of the parking lot Cooper was questioned by Stephanie low records co counsel it tell us what you saw that.
Q you -- And then this -- -- it and cracking and breaking.
And then maybe he's right.
Didn't bystanders should -- not Comodo -- -- recounted.
How she rushed to ignores aid right after she was here.
I pushed the hair out of her face.
And not my whole thing and -- The defense and challenge the witness' recollection on cross examination.
I asked you that question about the it will be -- legal -- not -- to you call me asking about.
Not -- to clean him.
Their objective to dispel any inference.
That alma Lackey was lying in wait for his daughter and a mall I must have misspoke this could even when they said that none none none.
One I witnessed the defense did not question among -- -- -- -- friend who survived the crash.
Judge Rowland -- we would not let -- show her face as she testified through a translator.
That alma lucky did not lose control.
But steered his Jeep right at his daughter did you -- internally -- -- And it -- channel yes yes why did he do it.
Record played for the jury the entire two hour interrogation.
Of -- -- -- get the Atlanta airport.
It included this stunning exchange that record believes shows this was an honor killing.
I know your reaction when -- told you people who -- helping you know.
I think there's people up there in your family and probably yourself and then what happened -- -- What's so scary movie.
And were -- And local -- -- Multiple article golf ball -- we -- -- It's probable but when you Larry dark future for all.
We try to put whopper bar.
Know what I don't think -- won't -- It's -- the small fire what you're saying nor is a small fire trap but -- don't -- -- -- -- apparently yes because.
I get into -- -- -- -- it's gotten so what you're saying it is if you sacrifice one.
Small portion of the family you're saving the rest of the family -- -- I don't know.
While there's more informally all my friends potential -- help -- because I'm.
-- -- What did he mean by that he is talking about his daughter the fire was.
Was a metaphor.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- He's the fire.
He is the one in trouble.
Assistant public defender Jeff church work.
Would tell the jury record got it exactly wrong -- family.
It's helping him.
On cross Kirchner also went after the detective who interrogated -- client during the course of the two hour interview.
It tells you fifteen times.
That it was -- -- If you count on them -- we'll take that there's.
-- hostage for eleven times.
Clinton maintains -- accidents.
-- Yes and no.
Then the defense went right at the heart of the prosecution's theory that this was a premeditated.
-- -- accused -- we have making up that whole idea he gave him.
Was honor does something about its culture.
Yes and then the prosecution countered.
With the two police officers who responded to those prior incidents -- ignore and her father.
He told me that you rather spend the rest of his life and tell -- of his daughter continued to disgrace is that what they believe that his family law was higher than.
Finally detected -- returned to -- stand to read in translation of those jailhouse phone calls.
Alma elect he had made to his wife using Al -- he's own words against him.
No one hates his daughter.
But -- is -- when you hear a piece of evidence like that.
Is there any doubt your mind it's.
You have this defendant -- no doubt this was -- -- premeditated murder now it was the defense's turn.
-- this honor killing.
And what happened next would still in the many in the courtroom.
Fox News reporting a question of honor.
Continues after the break.
Mama mama -- -- silent as the prosecution pressed its case.
That he murdered his daughter out of a twisted sense of -- After the state rested judge Rowland Stanley asked Obama like he would take the stand.
In his own defense.
It is your client can testify -- From our views.
He has troops not test.
Progress without calling a single witness the defense rested.
-- you prepared to your closing argument in closing arguments the prosecution pounded away at their premeditated.
Honor killing theme.
It was the jury's duty to return a guilty verdict of first degree murder not second degree it's a region manslaughter.
The evidence -- is way beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant intended.
To erased an order from his life.
In this -- and in the name of -- When you major closing arguments that you think I've got this case I don't know.
An -- that level of confidence but I knew I I had some jurors in our pocket.
Law tends to hurt -- -- -- lawyer argued this was not a premeditated.
And it most his client was guilty of manslaughter because he simply intended to drive close enough to his daughter nor to spit on her.
She's not scared from harm.
She thinks he's gonna do something else -- Paris.
Caller name deliberations began.
They -- no verdict date to there's still delivery day three.
What were you thinking that by that point I was afraid that -- and come back manslaughter.
I was -- on the fourth day of deliberations.
The jury reached a verdict.
We the jury duly impaneled and -- and above entitled action upon parents do you plan -- the candidate.
While it -- some -- on Palm Pilot he has to count 11.
Degree murder a domestic violence offense -- victim or a lot -- -- let me.
Not guilty we did Jerry do you find that the and then -- a -- out like he has to count 12.
Degree murder guilty.
In other words the jury did not agree that this was a premeditated murder it was not an honor killing.
A defeat for the prosecution.
For the injury suffered by family -- -- Markel off the jury found Obama -- guilty of aggravated assaults.
He was also found guilty of two counts of leaving the scene of -- serious accident record believed she had failed nor.
I truly felt I -- filled -- -- point.
You did I.
You think the jury got it wrong.
-- -- -- And I'm not gonna say I respect her opinion perspective current.
What did you vote and actually I initially voted first year -- -- offices premeditated yeah.
Jeff -- sweep was the jury Foreman how many others and that jury room agree with -- I think it was about six and six on murder one.
That couldn't couldn't agree with him or why did you fluent in order to get a verdict out.
We went to step down to see if we could come to a resolution on lesser charge did the issue of honor killing come up.
In your deliberations.
Did not really we talked about a little bit the jury pool was split on whether it was.
He was angry at his daughter and he just saw her and and -- in his anger killed her or it was for -- but but in your view did -- have anything to do with.
I'm not sure.
Our system was being tested on whether -- multi cultural as a would win.
Or whether justice and equal treatment before the law would win then the system you believe clearly failed.
This jury had had mercy on -- More than just mercy on him they were sort of having mercy on another culture and that is going to erode our society yet.
But this case was not over yet follow I'm a -- would finally address the court.
And the judge would address.
Good news is full of stories of people who killed their wives or children.
Scott Peterson Susan Smith Andrea Yates just to name a few.
Was the murder of nor alma Lackey any different.
Judge -- sign Lee had precisely that question on his mind.
As -- father begged him for mercy.
I'm not only with -- which laws that not her.
I'm sorry no.
Then judge Rowland stunningly addressed head on -- issue.
That home over his courtroom from day one let's say this is an honor killing.
-- deeply deeply deeply wrong this has nothing to do with honor.
This has to do.
With one man driven.
Out of hatred.
To kill his own daughter.
Because it suited his purpose.
What do you say that the phone calls from jail where he said onerous precious.
Nothing is better than.
Honor I think -- sensationalize.
As what is nothing more than I.
It parent killing a child I'm not saying that because he was for my Iraq.
That he may not have had some belief that.
It was an honor killing but I think from the final analysis what it does is it gives him.
Called an honor killing and it -- -- a victim.
Judge Stein -- sentenced fifty year old alma elect me to 34 and a half years in prison for his crimes.
Injuring -- mall and leaving the scene of a serious accident.
-- -- Will be nothing compared.
To the wrath of god.
If you don't ask for forgive.
-- -- but others who've been asking tough questions about radical Islam.
Think judge Stein -- reasoning begs this question why is he.
What it is that it has actually.
The judge a judge in -- on a killing in Pakistan would simply say it out yet the united -- -- was in Atlanta and so you tell that okay case dismissed boom next.
Now -- not yet at that stage in the United States.
But in a sentence he's doing exactly what that Pakistani judges to ease disarming the memory of that.
None of it but mark he's -- -- for a long time yet but you know when sending a consistent message.
That that is not in the interest all of America as a whole and it is -- not in the interest of young women like new round.
That is the message that -- sending.
Prosecutor records still insists nor alma Lackey was the victim of an honor killing but the fact she was not able to convince a jury of that has not -- her just the opposite.
She's been invited across the country.
To talk about a practice she fears is taking hold in America what brings you -- action seven weeks after the sentencing we caught up with -- in New York.
Where she was addressing a conference on the growing number of honor killings by Muslim men here in America and the west.
I remember when we -- in Phoenix.
You said at a time that you believe he would -- Yes still feel that way can do.
I do I feel like we failed nor by not getting the first degree.
What -- she -- so much.
Because she was abandon.
-- she had so much potential.
In -- -- move Hanley turned against her her.
Notion -- -- How often do you think about nor every day.
That's our program.
I'm Bill Hemmer.
Thanks for watching.
