An Iranian woman has been sentenced to death by stoning for adultery after murdering her husband and burying his body with the help of her lover, the press reported Sunday.
Maryam Ayubi, 30, was found guilty of adultery with her lover, Hossein Asna-Ashari, and of complicity in the murder of her husband, the press reports said, adding that the adulterous couple killed the husband, burned his body and then abandoned it in a desert area south of Tehran.
The court verdict spelt out that Ayubi was condemned to death by stoning for an "adulterous liaison" and to 15 years in jail for complicity to murder.
