Testimony Wednesday in the murder case of a New York man charged with conspiring to have his wife killed on a Boonton street in August 2011, revealed results of a forensic examination of the defendant's email showed he looked into black magic two years ago as a means to allegedly get his wife out of his life, the Daily Record reported.
Superior Court Judge Robert J. Gilson at the Morris County Courthouse in Morristown heard testimony on Parvaiz's alleged “prior bad acts” that led up to the fatal shooting of 26-year-old Nazish Noorani, who was killed while walking with her spouse and one of their small children along Boonton's Cedar Street after having spent Ramadan with relatives. Parvaiz was injured in the shooting as well.
Detective Supervisor Christopher Vanadia told the judge his investigation found "email remnants" of communications between Parvaiz from 2009 and 2010 with "high priest of the black arts" Kuma Hassan of AncientBlackMagic.com and with Florida businessman Michael Jenkins.
Vanadia testified that he conducted a forensic exam showing that Parvaiz told the gurus that he wanted to put a spell on his wife so that she would either leave him and their two children, disappear or die accidentally. The testimony indicated that Parvaiz was willing to pay Jenkins' $2,500 upfront fee, but was skeptical that a spell could guarantee Noorani's "accidental death."
Parvaiz, of Brooklyn, N.Y., and alleged shooter Antionette Stephen, 27, of Billerica, Mass., were indicted in June 2012 on charges of first-degree murder, first-degree conspiracy to commit murder, multiple weapons offenses, endangering the welfare of a child and child abuse charges. Pre-trial testimony will resume Jan. 2.
