A Jordanian man has turned himself in to police after shooting dead his 30-year-old daughter in the Jordan Valley in an apparent new "honor killing", a security source said on Tuesday.
"The man shot his daughter several times after a quarrel as he tried to prevent her from leaving home," the source told AFP.
"The suspect has confessed to killing his daughter because she regularly disappeared for several days."
In November, a 33-year-old Jordanian was charged with premeditated murder for strangling his divorced 29 year-old sister for leaving home for more than a year "without permission."
Some dozen so-called "honor killings" are reported in Jordan each year, with the killers often receiving light sentences if convicted.
Parliament has twice refused to reform the penal code despite pressure from human rights groups to end the near impunity of men who commit such killings.
