TORONTO -- Peer Khairi's children came to court to plead for their father, to sing his praises and beg for mercy, but said not a word about the dead mother he viciously killed and almost beheaded.

Not a word.

And therein lies the tragedy of this sad, sad case, that Randjida Khairi was brutally slain because she dared to stand up to her Afghan immigrant husband and defend their six children against his controlling wrath. But in return, they now speak only in defence of her killer and express not an ounce of sorrow or anger about what he'd done.

As if she never meant anything to them at all.
