She said the last time she had seen Shafilea was on September 11 2003. Mr Hussain said: "And who was the last person to see her alive on September 11?" The defendant replied: "My husband."
Mrs Ahmed has always denied murder, but earlier this month the jury of seven men and five women were told she had changed her account and said she witnessed her husband beat Shafilea on the night of the alleged murder.
She also claimed he had threatened to do the same to her and their other children if she ever asked him what had happened to Shafilea.
It was not until last year that Shafilea's younger sister, Alesha Ahmed, provided the "final piece of the puzzle" about her death, the prosecution said, when she disclosed that she witnessed her parents killing Shafilea at the family home. Alesha described how her parents pushed Shafilea onto the settee in their house and she heard her mother say "Just finish it here" as they forced a plastic bag into the teenager's mouth and suffocated her in front of their other children.
The couple allegedly murdered their "Westernised" daughter because they believed her conduct was bringing shame on the family, the prosecution said. Mr and Mrs Ahmed both deny murder.
