NEW YORK (AP) The daughter of a New York City cab driver from Pakistan is testifying against him at his murder conspiracy trial.

Prosecutors have accused Mohammad Ajmal Choudhry (AHJ'-mahl CHOWD'-ree) of arranging the killings in Pakistan of relatives of a man who helped his daughter flee an arranged marriage there.

The daughter, Amina Ajmal (uh-MEE'-nuh AHJ'-mahl), began testifying on Wednesday in federal court in Brooklyn.

She's expected to take the witness stand again on Thursday.

He has denied the allegations.

Both father and daughter wept at times as she described how her father threatened to kill her if she didn't follow his wishes for the arranged marriage.
