MORRISTOWN, N.J. (AP) - Opening arguments have started in the murder trial of a New York City man accused of setting up the murder of his wife in northern New Jersey.

Morris County prosecutors say Kashif Parvaiz (par-VEZZ’) Parvaiz schemed with a Massachusetts woman to kill his wife and make it look like a random attack. The August 2011 shooting occurred while Parvaiz and his wife, 27-year-old Nazish Noorani, walked with one of their young sons in Boonton.

Prosecutors told jurors Wednesday that the 29-year-old Brooklyn resident knowingly walked his wife down a dark street “to her execution.” But defense attorney John Bruno Jr., told jurors that while Parvaiz may have some character flaws, he’s not a murderer.

Parvaiz’s alleged accomplice, Antoinette Stephen, pleaded guilty in May to murder and other offenses.
