An evil 42-year-old Iranian man has brutally stabbed his 35-year-old hairdresser wife to death inside their apartment because he was upset she had converted to Christianity.

According to Dailymail, Amir Darbanou was charged with the murder of his wife Nasrin Abek after her body was found inside their apartment in the affluent suburb of Potts Point on Thursday.
It was gathered that the man got enraged that his wife Ms Abek had recently converted to Christianity and killed the hairdresser in a frenzied knife attack on Wednesday night, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.
Police made the shocking discovery after forcefully gaining access into the couple’s home at about 6.20am on Thursday after Ms Abek’s father raised concerns for her welfare.
Mr Darbanou had allegedly called his father-in-law in Iran to tell him Ms Abek was dead on Wednesday night and was arrested after her body was found the next day. Ms Abek’s father said his heartache over her death had been made worse by the fact he had to contact police ‘several times’ before they would act.
Superintendent Mick Fitzgerald said officers believe they recovered the knife allegedly used to kill Ms Abek during a search of a nearby garbage tip, but at this stage of the investigation it was ‘too early to tell’.
Mr Darbanou is expected to face court again on November 24.
