64-year-old Jamal Mansour has 7 children. He was jailed after he killed his youngest child because of her messy room. On September 27, 2016, Mansour shoot his younger daughter Tahina Mansour to death. The incident happened at the family home in Rocky River after the father was furious about Tahani’s messy room.
The father of the victim claimed that he shot his daughter because she was disrespecting his rules.
He said: “she did not respect his rules by coming home late and not cleaning her room. Piles of clothes all over the room and half-eaten meals under her bed.”
27-year-old Tahina Mansour was ordered by her father Jamal Mansour to clean her room; however, when she refuses to do it Mr. Mansour shot her in the face twice and once in her neck.
The victim who used to work as a pharmacist at University Hospitals Ahuja Medical Center in Beachwood, past away after undergoing brain surgery following the shooting incident.
On Tuesday, Jamal Mansour was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and criminal assault. He was sentenced to serve 22 years in prison and six of those are mandatory.
Mansour does not have any criminal record. According to Daily Mail, Rocky River police were called to the home once before when the father threatened to commit suicide because his “daughter was on a business trip in Las Vegas, Nevada.”
The report did not confirm the name of Tahina, but her friends confirmed that she was in Las Vegas at a national conference at that time.
His defense attorney, Angelo Lonardo said his client has been an ‘ideal father’ and worked hard to provide for his family as he owns gas station across Northeast Ohio, Daily Mail reported.
Mansour has apologized to his family in court, “I hope that they can forgive me, I miss her so much. I wish I was the one that was dead”.
During the investigation, another issue was also discovered. The victim is dating a man who has a different religious belief from her family. She pretends like she was with other people for fear of her father’s reaction, the prosecutor said when the victim is with her secret boyfriend.
