Relatives: Nazish Noorani, Mother Killed While Walking With Son In Boonton, Confronted Husband Kashif Parvaiz About Alleged Affair

BOONTON, NJ (CBSNewYork) — A New Jersey woman who was shot and killed while walking with her son and husband, who has been charged with plotting his wife’s murder with another woman, was fearing for her life months before she was killed.

LISTEN: WCBS 880’s Kelly Waldron reports

Nazish Noorani and her husband Kashif Parvaiz were walking with their 3-year-old son in Boonton Tuesday night when shots rang out. Noorani was killed. Parvaiz was wounded. There son was not hurt. The couple also has a 5-year-old son who was not with them at the time of the shooting.

Days later, police arrested Parvaiz and 26-year-old Antionette Stephen from Massachusetts on charges of murder, conspiracy and weapons offenses. Parvaiz also faces child-endangerment charges.

Months before she was killed, family members say Noorani suspected her husband was having an affair with Stephen, who is now accused of helping to plot her murder.

Relatives say she heard neighbors refer to Stephen as her husband’s fiancé and found a pair of women’s socks in her husband’s apartment, which she visited on weekends with her sons.

An arrest affidavit also quoted a text message from Noorani to her brother that said “Someday u will find me dead but its cuz of kashi … He wants to kill me.”

Still, family members including Noorani’s cousin Yasir Raja, say they never suspected anything like this would happen.

“The first person they usually suspect is usually the spouse,” said Raja. “In any case, it doesn’t matter what it is, but nobody thought that it would be like this.”

Relatives say when Noorani confronted her husband about his relationship with Stephen, he apparently told her he was just pretending the two were engaged to get a family discount at Best Buy where Stephen worked.

Meanwhile, condolences have been pouring in for Noorani and her family.

On a website set up by friends and relatives, to help the couple’s two sons, many writers on its guest book have expressed shock and disbelief about what happened, calling her death  “senseless and stupid.”

One writer hoped Noorani’s children will be able to “move forward with beautiful memories.”

The site says Noorani was a “loving and devoted mother” who “lived for her children.”

    Such a beautiful woman…such a senseless crime…what was that man thinking? Now their children have no parents and will have to deal with emotional trauma their whole life. May she rest in peace.

    Shame on both families (that of Kashif & Nazish) for not seeking community’s help to save her life & are very quick in seeking financial support from community. These guys are too selfish!

    Please don’t donate to these selfish families & instead save those two kids from these selfish families who let Kashif kill Nazish, knowingly that her life is in danger & he can kill her anytime. appears to be fraud, they didn’t mention who will operate the account & whats his/her credibility. Such type of fund should have been operated by some credible persons of local community rather than these two selfish & greedy families. The two kids should be raised under the supervision of some credible persons of local community.

    These two families should be penalized to bear the living expenses of these two kids until they turn 18.

    Everyone is so concerned with the grammatical side of this story, who cares? Two little boys lost their precious Mother because “Daddy” thought with his you know what instead of his brain. It is really said and tragic. If you’re not happy in a relationship, marriage, get out but don’t murder. No one can ever take the place of your Mother and these little boys will have to face that the rest of their lives, but not only no Mother, a Father as well. I hope her husband and his girlfriend are given the ultimate sentence for this heinous crime. We should all pray for these little children and the family; God keep them in your care.

    I think this is a real tragic situation and that she didn’t deserve this. She was a beautiful young woman with her whole life ahead of her. So come on people let’s focus on Nazish’s precious little boys who have lost both of their parents at this time. Instead of the editor writing this story. Anyway it’s written it still is very sad and tragic. God be with this family and help them get through this.

    Agreed, Gayle. This article is poorly written and this poor woman deserved better in life as well as in relaying the account of her tragic death to the public.

  • Gayle Gerard

    “There son was not hurt.” Public schools have so cheated our young people, but you are a journalist. THEIR SON WAS NOT HURT. There, their, they’re. OMG. I see this all the time. Learn to spell. You are supposed to be a professional.
