20-year-old ethnic Kurdish woman, Gülsüm was strangled with a clothes line and clubbed to death in March 2009.
Her brother confessed to the crime. Germans have been outraged at a recent series of execution-style honour killings of young women by immigrant families.
Police said the family had attempted to force Gülsüm into a planned marriage and then discovered she was not a virgin and that she had undergone one or more abortions.
