Woman convicted of killing her daughter dies in prison

(KTVI) – A convicted murderer has died while serving a life sentence for the 1989 killing of her teenage daughter. Maria Isa, 70, died early Wednesday morning in a Vandalia, Illinois prison.

Isa was originally sentenced to death along with her husband. Authorities say she stabbed her 16-year-old daughter for resisting the family’s Islamic traditions.

The killing was caught on surveillance by the FBI who suspected Isa’s husband of being involved with the Palestinian Liberation Organization.

    If anybody remembers what they did to that poor girl, the question would be, why was she allowed to live to age 70. Sick, sick people, both her and her husband.

      “Sick, sick people, both her and her husband”……yes they are Rose, it’s called “ISLAM!” It should come as no surprise when you consider that we have an anti-USA anti-GOD pro-Muslim “politically correct” President in the White House who said on page 261 of his book “The Audacity of Hope”……… “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
      The actions of this degenerate cold heartless Mother and her husband are nothing more than typical “Muslim” philosophy.

        Yeah, because no evangelical Christian mother every killed her children, drowned her babies, etc etc in the name of God. No Christian in the history of the world has ever killed someone “in the name of God”. Right Mr “I am an Opinionated Jackasss”?

        Opinioated you are so blind and clueless islam as one can be. 1. of all : Honourkilling is not an “islamic” tradition, as islam condemns it, but a tradition of certain cultures. Kindly get your facts straight. Secondly: Just recently, in Jordan, a christian father killed his daughter for converting to islam, just to mention one example of the oposit side. Will you call those who were killing in the name of christianity murderers or terrorists? Just wondering coz there are more than one victims of those, check back on history.

      What would you expect from’these people?” Kidnapping over 200+ schoolgirls in nigeria (cnn msn) and the attacks on women in western europe. Sweden has an epidemic of this. (youtube) terrorism, honor killings, child brides, suicide bombers, acid facials, are all daily occurrences of these “peaceful” people.Obama and his liberal sheep will defend them no matter what. I guess they can’t read a newspaper, or are just plain evil.

Once again, the stupidity of the far right never ceases to amaze. They must pride themselves on being the dumbest people on the face of the earth.

        Mr Ironic-What Sweney says is true. That mother in Texas that drowned her kids was due to mental issues, she begged her husband for help, was not in the name of God, the woman who drown her boys in a lake strapped inside the car was not in the name of God, but because of a new boyfriend who did not want her kids around. Muslims are not the peace loving people they try to portray in our country.

      and btw, miss ironic, no christian: honor killings, child brides, suicide bombers, acid facials, or christians.When it comes to your argument, I will tell you the same thing the doctor said to your mother: Epic fail! HAHAHA

  • Mr Ironic

    Great news reporting. How about telling us what she died of? Natural causes? Killed by an inmate?

    Opinioated you are so blind and clueless about islam as one can be. 1. of all : Honourkilling is not an “islamic” tradition, as islam condemns it, but a tradition of certain cultures (existent in India and some other countries too, just to mention a few examples. It is hardly ever the religious believe behind it, rather the fact that those parents are afraid from the society, from what others might say.) . Kindly get your facts straight. Secondly: Just recently, in Jordan, a christian father killed his daughter for converting to islam, an example of the opposite side. Will you call those who were killing in the name of Christianity murderers or terrorists? Just wondering coz there are more than one victims of those, check back on history. Not the religion is evil, but certain ppl… Murderers exist everywhere on this world, and it doesn’t really matter in the name of which idea they r killing: there is almost always one idea behind: the believe to having the right to judge or having the right to take the life of any other creature of God. This idea as such is a great sin in islam, as according to our believe, none, but Allah has the right to judge you for whatever sins you committed or taking your life….

    I hope Maria Isa rots in Hell along with her piece of scum husband Zein! I went to high school with Palestina (Tina) Isa and she was a wonderful, smart, sweet girl. Her parents should have been proud to have her for a daughter.
