      Daughter slain after she rejects marriage

      Officials say victim was strangled
      after she said she wanted divorce

      JONESBORO, Ga. - A daughter's refusal to stay in an arranged marriage led to her death and resulted in her father's arrest, according to police in Clayton County.
      Sandeela Kanwal, 25, was strangled on Sunday, police said.
      They allege that Chaudhry Rashid, 54, argued with his daughter, then choked her to death at the family home in Jonesboro.
      Rashid was scheduled to appear in court on Monday.
      According to a police report, Kanwal was forced into an arranged marriage in Pakistan a few years ago. Police say Kanwal wanted to leave her husband, which angered her father.
      Police said Kanwal's husband now lives in Chicago.
