Singh reportedly confronted her and tried to convince her not to leave the family. Kooner reportedly threatened to "rip off" Singh’s beard, which was a sign of disrespect to him.
Kooner’s husband was reportedly out of town for work when this happened.
KBAK/KBFX reports Kooner threatened to rip her clothes, call police, and allege that Singh tried to sexually assault her. Singh reportedly retrieved his gun from his bedroom and shot her.
Court documents cited by KBAK/KBFX say, "Singh stated he determined at that time his only choice was to commit an honor killing of his daughter-in-law for her indiscretions and disrespectful behavior."
Singh reportedly shot Kooner in the back of the neck, then shot her again twice.
