The husband of a young Muslim woman killed in New Jersey while out walking with him and their three-year-old son planned her murder in a series of chilling text messages, it has been claimed.Kashif Parvaiz, 26, who has been charged after admitting he was involved in the killing of his wife Nazish Noorani, also 26, sent a series of messages to his alleged lover and gunwoman, Antoinette Stephen, which chart their movements in the hours before the attack.
Mrs Moorani was killed just three blocks from her sister's house in the heavily Pakistani area of Boonton on Tuesday evening. The shooting left Parvaiz with four superficial gunshot wounds but he survived. The young boy, who was found covered in his parents' blood, was unhurt.Mugshots: Kashif Parvaiz, left, and Antionette Stephen, right, have both been charged with murder, conspiracy and weapons offences, while Parvaiz also faces child-endangerment charges

Tuesday, Aug. 16 [The day of the shooting]
KP to AS: Parvaiz wrote he was at Noorani's sister's home
AS to KP: 'Call me when u can. Delete all msgs from phone. I won't message from here on.'On Friday, Stephen sent one chilling and totally remorseless text to Parvaiz. 'You hang in there,' she wrote. 'Freedom is just around ur corner.'Despite allegedly going to extreme lengths to make the shooting look like a surprise hit, Mr Parvaiz has been charged with the murder along with Stephen, whose name appears on the mailbox of a Boston apartment with Parvaiz.Both face charges of murder, conspiracy and weapons offences, while Parvaiz also faces child-endangerment charges. He is on a $1million bond while Stephen is being held on $5 million bail.Stephen, who is believed to be be Parvaiz's girlfriend, pulled the trigger, killing Noorani, sources told the New York Daily News.Morris County Prosecutor Robert Bianchi announced the charges at a press conference today.
'Within hours of the crime, we realised this was the handiwork of the husband,' he said.Authorities said Parvaiz conspired with Stephen to have his wife killed because she had dared to speak negatively about his family.There was also speculation that they were in a secret relationship.
'There is obviously a relationship, Bianchi said. 'I’m not saying it’s a physical relationship. I’m not saying it’s a girlfriend-boyfriend relationship.'
Police began to suspect Parvaiz after he kept changing his story about the shooting on Tuesday evening.He had originally said they were shot by one black male, one white male and a third man who had shouted racist abuse at them and called them 'terrorists'.He later said the men were all black, then that it was an accident, before finally admitting he was involved
'He did not want to be the person to look at his children and tell them he took their mother away,' Bianchi said.Relatives had earlier spoken of the Muslim couple's violent arranged marriage, marred by infidelity and lies.
One month ago Noorani sent a chilling message to her brother, ominously predicting her own murder.'One day you'll find me dead and it's going to be Kashi who did it, so save this text. You'll need it, she wrote to Kaleem Noorani, according to the New York Post. 'Kashi doesn't want to be with me, he abuses me.'In court: Antoinette Stephen stands behind a partition during her arraignment on a fugitive from justice charge todayWith at least part of her prediction coming true this week, officers became increasingly suspicious of her husband.A source told the Post: 'The guy's story was not working out. The time was always changing.'Flatmates: The mailbox outside a Boston apartment that Kashif Parvaiz is said to have shared with his alleged accomplice Antoinette StephenNoorani's relatives, meanwhile, spoke of their doubts about her husband's accounts of the events and speculated about his alleged infidelity, describing his life as 'a sham'.'He was such a pathological liar in my eyes,' a cousin said.
The young Muslim woman married Parvaiz despite a background check run by her family, which revealed he had lied in the past about graduating from two schools: Brooklyn Polytechnic and NYU.He has also claimed to have attended Ivy League Harvard and Columbia, but neither have records of him signing up.The cousin added: 'After I told her... they still got married. He didn't go to the school. He never had a job. His whole life is a sham.'She said that the couple's relationship had been frighteningly violent.
'The family has been talking about how he was abusive... There were definitely instances of abuse,' she added.'I hope he's not involved,' Noorani's brother, Kaleem Noorani added, while speaking to the New York Daily News. 'I hope he has nothing to do with this.'The relative admitted there were definite problems in the couple's arranged marriage. When pressed about rumours of infidelity, Noorani's sister, Lubna Choudhry, said: 'I have plenty to say about that.

I didn't see a car.'Choudhry, who is one of five siblings, described the atmosphere on the night, when the family had enjoyed a late dinner to break the Ramadan fast.'She was happy. She said: "I'll be right back. Make tea for me,"' Choudhry said.Mr Parvaiz's sister, Zarrem Hassan, however, insisted the relationship was a strong one. 'It was a loving and caring couple.
