The husband of a woman stoned in Lahore has said he simply took her to the court to get married because they "were in love".
Mohammad Iqbal 45, told Associated Press he started dating Farzana Parveen after the death of his first wife.
He alleges the woman's family wanted to fleece money from him before marrying her off.
Police official Naseem Butt said that Ms Parveen, 25, married Mr Iqbal to whom she had been engaged to for years, in opposition to her family.
Police officials said Ms Parveen's father surrendered after the incident and called it an "honour killing".
