Four relatives face life sentences for killing a pregnant woman they believed was possessed by an "evil spirit".
Naila Mumtaz’s disabled husband, her parents-in-law and brother-in-law were all convicted of her murder at Birmingham Crown Court yesterday.
The 21-year-old’s husband Mohammed collapsed in the dock as the jury’s verdicts were returned.
The three-month trial previously heard Mrs Mumtaz was found by paramedics "grey, ashen and lifeless" at her home in Craythorne Avenue, Handsworth Wood, at 4.30am on July 9, 2009.
She was six months’ pregnant and was in an arranged marriage.
Christopher Hotten QC, prosecuting, said family members believed Mrs Mumtaz, who had arrived in Birmingham two years earlier from Pakistan, was "possessed" by Muslim evil spirits known as Jinns.
He said she had been smothered by all four defendants – Mohammed, 27, his parents Zia Ul-Haq and Salma Aslam, both 51, and his 24-year-old brother Hammad Hassan.
After the verdicts, Det Insp Simon Astle said: "This was a tragic and deeply upsetting case, where a young woman had her life so horrifically ended by those she loved and trusted.
"Naila was a pretty, outgoing young woman who was soon to become a mother for the first time.
"It is unthinkable that those she was closest to would take her life in the belief that she had been possessed by evil spirits."
Her family said in a statement: "Naila was a happy, confident and beautiful young woman.
"She came to Britain to be with her husband. We entrusted our most treasured, beloved only daughter to him and his family."
Wendy Bounds, of the West Midlands Crown Prosecution Service’s complex casework unit, said: "Naila agreed to enter into an arranged marriage with the defendant, Mohammed Tauseef Mumtaz.
"She was aware he suffered from a physical disability, but she was not put off by his appearance taking the kind-hearted view that all living things had the same value.
"However, the jury found her husband and his family did not share her values."
Mr Justice Keith adjourned sentencing on all four, who were remanded in custody, for reports to be prepared.
