Yaser Abdel Said was accused of slaying his two daughters, 18-year-old Amina and 17-year-old Sarah, after he deceived them of taking them for a taxi drive for food on January 1st, 2008.

According to reports, the Egyptian migrant shot dead his two daughters and left their bodies in his cap before disappearing for 12 years.The FBI's has placed Yaser Abdel Said's name on the top-most wanted list for 6 years.

The Egyptian man claimed that he killed his two daughters in the name of 'honor'. However, District Attorney Creuzot said that: ""There is nothing honorable about what Yaser Said did." adding that "Dallas County has shown Mr. Said that there is no excuse for taking another human life."

The court's decision of handing a life term jail for Yaser Abdel Said over his 2008 cime where he killed his two young daughters was met with great celebrations online as social media users hailed the Attorney's sentence saying that the Egyptian father deserves even more.

Said has a long history in abusing his two daughters, as one of the girls said her father physically and sexually abused them tried to kill them and he even took Amina to Egypt allegedly to arrange a marriage for her to a much older friend of his, but Amina rejected the marriage.
