The Crown Prosecution Service says the Court of Appeal has received an application for appeal by Farzana Ahmed - convicted last month for the murder of her daughter, Shafilea. Ahmed and her husband, Iftikhar, were both given jail terms of at least 25 years for killing Bradford-born Shafilea.
The trial judge told them their concern about being apparently shamed in the community was "greater than the love of their child." Shafilea's mother always denied the charge but changed her evidence at her trial to pin the blame on her husband - but the jury did not believe her.
The pair suffocated their daughter with a plastic bag in 2003 in a so-called "honour killing" at their Warrington home. Her body was found the following year in Cumbria. She was killed after allegedly bringing shame on her family because of her so-called "Westernised ways".
The CPS says it does not know the grounds for Ahmed's appeal.
