(Associated Press) A father in northwestern India remained unrepentant after beheading his daughter with a ceremonial sword in a rage over her relationships with men, police said.

The man surrendered at a police station, carrying the head in one hand and the bloodied sword in the other, police said Tuesday. Oghad Singh, 46, was charged with murder.

Residents of Dungarji village expressed shock as they performed the last rites for the 20-year-old woman, who was killed Monday.

Police said Singh, a marble miner, accused his daughter of bringing dishonor to the family and making it hard to find husbands for her two unmarried sisters.
