North Texas man pleads guilty in hiding his father who was accused of "honor killings"


A North Texas man has pleaded guilty to hiding his father who was wanted in the 2008 "honor killings" of the father's two teenage daughters.

Yaser Abdel Said evaded capture for twelve years. However, he was found last year hiding in the Justin home of a relative.

The arrangements were made by his adult son Islam Yaser-Abdel Said who has now pleaded guilty to three conspiracy counts connected with helping his father evade arrest.

Islam Said could get up to 30 years.

The elder Said is awaiting trial on capital murder charges connected with the shooting deaths of his daughters who, according to investigators, had angered their father by dating non-Muslims.
