* Danish Irfan, 22, admits manslaughter but denies murdering Ridda Zanab, 21

* Attack sparked by discovery of text message reading 'I luv yu', jury told

* Ms Zanab had only given birth to couple's daughter two months before death

* After killing, Irfan told his family Ms Zanab had 'kicked off' and left home

* He then flew to Pakistan on a false passport, Bradford Crown Court hears

* But he told a friend about her death and police found her body at their home

* 'Possessive' Irfan 'did not like Westernised wife working or seeing family'

* Ms Zanab had been spending time with a close friend 'Rob' before attack

A possessive and controlling  husband murdered his sleeping wife with a hammer after finding her intimate message to another man, a court heard yesterday.

Danish Irfan, 22, hit Ridda Zanab at least ten times in a jealous fury after he read the text ‘I luv yu, mwahhh, gud nyt’, it is claimed.

The couple’s marriage was allegedly on the rocks because the Pakistani husband disapproved of his British-born wife’s westernised lifestyle and love of going out.  The idea of her working, wearing western clothes or seeing friends and family had already led to him to try to strangle her, Bradford Crown Court was told.

Mrs Zanab had given birth to their daughter two months before she was killed.  After the baby was born Irfan, who worked in a takeaway, became more jealous and may have been tracking his wife on his iPhone, according to Jonathan Sharp, prosecuting.

Mrs Zanab then developed a relationship with a man known as Rob and told her husband their marriage was over.
