The jury Tuesday also returned guilty verdicts against Faleh Hassan Almaleki on aggravated assault and two counts of leaving the scene of an accident, KTVK-TV, Phoenix, reported.
During the trial, prosecutors told jurors Almaleki struck his 20-year-old daughter, Noor Almaleki, with his vehicle in October 2009 because she dishonored her family by adopting too many Western ways. Noor Almaleki died after two weeks in a coma.
Almaleki's vehicle also hit and seriously injured Amal Khalaf, the mother of Noor's boyfriend.
Defense lawyers said Almaleki was trying to spit on Khalaf but swerved and hit both women.
