On Thursday, February 16, 2023, Marefat Karimi, 29, from Salmas and living in Urmia, was severely beaten and killed by her husband, Jafar Khishkar. Marefat objected to his decision to marry a second wife, and as a result, he severely beat and strangled her.

A medical examiner would later determine that the Marefat Karimi died as a result of the severe injuries she sustained during the beatings by her husband, including suffocation.

She was the mother of a five-year-old child. The body was released to her family on Friday and her funeral took place the same day.
