A Brooklyn NY man has been charged with the murder of his wife.
During a recent hearing in Morris County Superior Court in Morristown, NJ, prosecutors requested that emails sent by 28-year-old Kashif Parvaiz to multiple black magic companies be deemed admissible evidence. According to the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office, the emails show that Parvaiz inquired about causing the “accidental death” of his wife.
Parvaiz is accused of conspiring to commit the murder of his wife, Nazish Noorani, in 2011. According to authorities, Parvaiz and 28-year-old Massachusetts resident Antoinette Stephen conspired to kill Noorani. Parvaiz and Stephen had apparently been involved in a long-term romantic relationship.
Prosecutors believe that the suspects arranged to have Parvaiz wounded during the attack in order to mislead investigators. After the incident, Parvaiz told police that he had been targeted in a “bias incident.” Under the NJ Criminal Code, a bias incident is defined as any unlawful act against a person because of the person’s race, color, religion, or gender.
In May of this year, Stephen pleaded guilty to the murder and agreed to cooperate with law enforcement. Authorities had already uncovered a litany of incriminating text messages between Stephen and Parvaiz. Additionally, detectives found a series of emails exchanged between Parvaiz and the black magic companies “Extreme Black Magic” and “Ancient Black Magic.” These emails allegedly document Parvaiz asking the companies about “getting rid of” his wife and making her “disappear.”
In court, prosecutors argued that the emails should be admitted into evidence at trial because they demonstrate Parvaiz’s “prior bad acts.” Further, prosecutors argued that the emails indicate Parvaiz’s motive in the murder.
Although the judge has yet to issue a ruling on the matter, one is expected when proceedings resume on January 2, 2014.
