Yelena Belorusets, of New York City, is a former 'fiancee' of a Boonton man—accused of conspiring to kill his wife in front of one of their children—and Belorusets testified in a pre-trial on Wednesday in Superior Court in Morristown.

The Boonton man, Kashif Parvaiz, is accused of conspiring with Antoinette Stephen, a 29-year-old Massachusetts woman he was having an alleged affair with who pleaded guilty last July to the fatal shooting of Parvaiz’ wife Nazish Noorani, 27, in August 2011.

Belorusets said on Wednesday’s pre-trial that although Parvaiz did not speak of harming Noorani, he said he wanted to be rid of her, according to the Daily Record. Parvaiz told her that he was divorced from Noorani and that Noorani had a child with another man who left her after the child was born in 2008. Belorusets was engaged to Parvaiz but left him a few days before Noorani’s murder because she said he was lying to her.

Last month, Parvaiz’ bail was maintained at $3 million as new details of the 2011 incident were revealed in court.

Noorani was killed when she was walking with Parvaiz and their 3-year-old son on Cedar Street in Boonton. Parvaiz, who was shot four times in the incident, had originally told authorities he and his wife were victims of a hate crime. He claimed they were approached by several men who yelled racial slurs before shooting them while they pushed their son in a stroller.

However, phone records revealed Parvaiz allegedly plotted the attack with Stephen, authorities said.
