A 21-year-old Jordanian man has been sentenced to 15 years in jail for killing his married sister over an alleged affair, court officials said.
He was charged with premeditated murder for stabbing his 18-year-old sister 26 times with a kitchen knife last year.
He claimed he wanted to restore his family's honour.
Around 15-20 women are killed each year in Jordan in the name of honour, despite government efforts to fight such crimes.
So far this year, 16 such crimes have been reported, according to the AFP news agency.
Jordan has been criticised in the past for giving lenient sentences in so-called honour killing cases.
But this time, the court refused to reduce the sentence despite pleas for leniency from the man's family.
"The court did not find any reason to commute or reduce the sentence, especially as the convict had previous knowledge of the affair and decided to plan the murder," a court official was quoted as saying by AFP.
The verdict can be appealed within 30 days.
