A Christian Israeli man stabbed his teenage daughter to death because she was dating a Muslim man, according to prosecutors.

Henriette Karra, 17, was found dead last month, two weeks after she left home because of threats from her father Sami Karra over her relationship with the unidentified man.

An indictment reported by Haaretz said that she told a relative on the day of her death that her boyfriend, serving time in prison for an unidentified crime, was getting out at the end of the week.

She also said that she was going to convert to Islam, a plan that allegedly set her father, 58, on a course to kill her on June 13, days after she graduated from high school.

Henriette’s mother allegedly told police that her husband, who has a criminal history including intimidation and drug crimes, thought her daughter’s love violated the “family’s honor.”

The teen had stayed at different places, including with her boyfriend’s mother, and had meetings with both police and social services in the days before her death.

A week before she died she had filed a complaint saying her mother had attacked her, and text messages reported by the Jerusalem Post said she was worried for her life.

“You won’t believe what they did to me... They are sending people to kill me,” a message to a friend said.

The newspaper also reported Sami Karra saying early in June that he "would spend my whole life in jail" after beating his daughter.

Henriette was found dead of three stab wounds to the neck at her parents’ home in Ramle, according to prosecutors who charged her father on Sunday.

“Christians, Jews and Muslims are all in shock. She was someone who loved life. She had a good character and a lot of friends. She wanted to do a lot of things. She had a graduation party and was murdered the next day,” her classmate told the Post.
